Optical drive not recognized, damaged logic board?
So I recently replaced a damaged optical drive in my 2.16 a1211 with a superdrive and now the optical drive is not recognized. In fact, the computer won't boot whatsoever - it freezes and tells me to restart. If I boot into target mode the optical drive is not recognized by the host computer (although the hard drive is) and if I boot into "option" mode the drive is also not recognized.
It receives power. I can input discs and eject them just fine. So something is really goofy. Is this is a damaged logic board, bent pins, what?
Edit: with a 10.6.6 install disc inserted it does appear to be recognized. However, this does not help at all as I still cannot boot into OS X and still get that grey screen! Even attempting to boot into safe mode does not work
Is this a good question?
