Default XBOX HD DVD Drive with Mini 9 - 10-22-2009, 06:07 AM

Ok, I bought an XBox HD DVD drive to use as an external after reading several threads that said it would work with the Mini 9 with OS X. I got it, and plugged it in, but it didn't seem to be recognized as even being there. Any ideas? My specs are in the signature. Thanks!

Check the system log after plugging it in. There may be relevant messages.
