Force the system to find a 'lost' optical drive
Authored by: boltar on Aug 08, '07 06:06:52AM
My Intel Mac Mini lost the DVD drive a few months ago. It took multiple restarts for the machine to find the drive again --- more like spinning a roulette wheel than a reliable solution.

I tried rebooting into Windows (via BootCamp) to solve the problem, but Windows couldn't see the drive either. I suspect this is a hardware problem, or that the Boot Camp driver has the same bug that the OS X driver does.
