Hard drive won't mount, optical drive won't play
The only way I can get this machine to boot lately is if I boot with the HD from Firewire. And when I do so, the optical drive won't play any media; DVD or CD. Any ideas?
I've tried both suggestions and on either case System Profiler did not show the optical drive or the HD.. Is it possible that the IDE channel is broken. I'm thinking this because both the optical and the HD are connected to the same channel.
