Force the system to find a 'lost' optical drive
Authored by: peterholdn on Oct 21, '07 08:15:14PM

Has anyone found a fix for this. It just started happening to me -- immediately on the installation of the new firmware update on my Intel mac pro. Actually, it was even worse - neither drive would play a DVD without stuttering, but it seems that deleting every preference I could find that even remotely had anything to do with DVDs seemed to help the playback problem - when the computer can see it at all.

Failing a solution, does anyone know a reference to a complete list of DVD and/or drive preferences that I could try deleting/ fixing?

Relax, it's only ones and zeroes.
