I just installed two SATA Blu-ray drives, replacing the two original Sony DVD drives. I connected them to the two SATA ports on the motherborad labeled
ODD. They both work fine right after startup. But later the OS (computer) forgets them. That is they disappear from the from the drive listings in disk utility.
And of course they no longer respond to open or close commands, or anything else for that matter. All is corrected when I restart and they are found again and work just fine, including burning. My MacPro is an old 2006 model running Lion.
What would cause this?
