    Hi guys!

    I installed my Pioneer Bluray drive in the second optical bay on my Mac Pro 2010. It works fine but when computer has been on for a little while it has lost connection with the drive entirely. I'm not sure when exactly. I mostly notice it when I try to open the tray and get no response. When i check in Toast, the app freezes due to the faulty connection and when checking for it on the computer info it's not there anymore. Anyone know why this is?
    One possibility I can imagine is a sleep/wake issue where this connection is somehow lost, but I never put the computer to sleep so this can't be it.

    Any ideas?
    I would hate to remove the Bluray drive entirely, but maybe I can switch places?

    Gimme some of your thoughts and experiences please.

    Can it be incompatible firmware? Have others used that particular model in a Mac Pro before?

    I met the same issue

    Is there anyone got an idea about how to debug this?
