Okay I think im in the right thread since this problem is right after installing.


So heres what i do. I have a small IBM Thinkcentre with osx JAS 10.4.3. Now this machince doesnt have a dvd drive so when installing i just borrowed the one in my main pc installed osx like a champ.

After Install I removed the dvd drive and replaced it with my thinkcentre one.

Now in OSX it wont read any disks.

I Obvoiusly know there seems to be some kind of compatability issues here since my other drive works fine but i wanted to know if anyone else had encountered this and how they may have fixed it.


Heres all the info on my drive.
