    MacBook Pro 2007 + Extrerna; DVD Drive
    Hi All,

    I have got a Macbook Pro 2007 and i have recently swapped out the DVD drive to use a second HDD bay.

    I bought a Mackbook pro 2008 DVD Superdirve and a SATA external dvd case to use. When i plug the drive into my Macbook Pro 2007 model it is recognised, as when i go to :

    Disk Utils
    System Profile

    The drive is shown as a USB connection and states the make of the drive. As soon as i put a dvd drive in it will not load it up. However, If i take heh drive and put it into a Windows machine, it is seen and disk loads up fine,

    HAs anyone else had this issue? It's sending me round in circlets.

    Ive tried most things from here without luck:

    ** Update

    While re-adding a disk again to check something, it looks like as soon as the disk is added it removes the drive from Disk Util
