    It's installed as soon as you plug it in properly.

    As to whether it's mounted or not, have you opened up Disk Utility to see if it is showing there?

    I am guessing you're waiting for it to pop up on the Desktop? Won't do that unless you have your preferences set to show it on the Desktop.

    Open up 'Finder - Preferences - General' tab and put a check next to 'CDs, DVDs and iPods'.

    Want it to show up in the sidebar of Finder - head for the same place but the 'Sidebar' tab.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I've got a 'bare' Samsung Blu-ray drive and it does just appear on the desktop.... but it has to have a disc in it.

    That's the same with any external optical drive or even a USB external floppy drive.... unless there's a disk in it, it won't show on the desktop. Unlike Windows where it does show, disk or no disk.
