How to disable an optical drive
Authored by: WaterCooled on Mar 02, '09 03:16:51PM
Just found out how to do this tweak by a more "cleaner" manner : you just need to unload all the kext dependencies of IOCDStorageFamily, then unload IODVDStorageFamily itself :
sudo kextunload IOSCSIArchitectureModelFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOSCSIMultimediaCommandsDevice.kext
sudo kextunload IOBDStorageFamily.kext
sudo kextunload IODVDStorageFamily.kext
sudo kextunload IOCDStorageFamily.kext
You can actually see all the dependancies by just looking at the command "kextstat".
