How to disable an optical drive
Authored by: spodie on Dec 09, '05 11:08:44PM

Maybe I'm just being Mr. Obvious here, but wouldn't it be a heck of a lot easier to shut the machine down, open it up, and disconnect the ATA cable from the drive? Beats messing around with the OS.

How obvious, how could he have missed that taking apart an iBook or PowerBook is so much simpler than dragging and dropping a file into a folder.

Oh wait... "and I didn't want to take apart the laptop and disconnect it". Thank you Captain Obvious.
