I am using a HP usb dvd drive.   Had problems with Apple's dvd drive.   The HP worked before but haven't used it in a few months.  Now,  The computer doesn't realize I have a dvd drive at all....doesn't matter if I connect the Apple or HP drive (preferred.)


How do I go about getting the computer to recognize the usb-connected HP dvd drive???

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.5), using HP usb dvd drive.
