Replaced the optical drive - doesn't work :(
Eventhough this was the first time I replaced something in my MacBook I have to say that the instructions of ifixit.com guided me easily through this..
So far so good.
Now I replaced my broken matshita dvd drive with an HL GSA-S10N
But nothing has changed!
It pulls in the discs but nothing is ever mounted.
I tried several CDs and DVDs.
So I assume there is a software problem.
I tried to figure it out by checking probably every mac forum I found but I guess my english isn't good enough to understand whatever they were talking about.
Could please anybody tell me how to get it to work?
I want to install a new OS on a new, bigger HD, But I need a working DVD Drive first, This is so slowing me down!!
By the way I still use OS X 10.4.11
It doesn't show up in disk utility.
There is just my HD
But if I open the 'Ueber diesen Mac' menu (About this mac?)
it is listed as hardware in use.
IT might be listed in the disk utility if it would read a CD or DVD..
but that is not the case.
Is this a good question?
