Make CD drive selection on Asunder easier

Bug Description

Asunder has the CD path set to /dev/cdrom, which is OK if you have one single CD drive.

However, if you have multiple drives and switch them for ripping for whatever reason (e.g. one is fast but fails to read some disks, the other is resilient but slow), selecting the right one is cumbersome: basically, you have to go to Settings, figure out the path and enter it manually. And next time, I will forget that I changed the path last time (to that USB drive which I have since disconnected) and wonder why this doesn’t work anymore.

I would appreciate an easier way to accomplish this: first of all, the CD drive should be selectable from the main window.

Bare minimum: a text box to enter the path to the CD drive, with a drop-down list of previously used entries (so I don’t have to enter the same path over and over again).

Gold standard: auto-populated list of all CD drives present on the system.
