I have a new Mac Pro Desktop 2012 Computer.  This has two optical drive slots.  In the upper I have the original drive that comes with the computer.  In the lower slot I installed a Pioneer Blu-Ray  BDR-208DBK disc reader.  The problem is that I cannot get the Blu0Ray drive to remain connected to the computer. 


I still seem to have some sort of problem with my new drive.  I have con tacted Pioneer but they claim they have no techies that work with Apple product.  I contacted Other Worlds Computing that I bought the unit from but the only real help they gave was to use the option key and the optic drive key to open/close the drive bay door.


Disc drive sees the two optic drives but soon the Poineer Blu-Ray just disappears.


It works after booting/rebooting but if left alone for a while the computer looses contact with it.


I'm attaching some snap shots that may help my explanation.  The first shot is when attempting to open the drive (lower drive in Disc Utility.  The second shot is the resulting error message.  I don't know where to find the meaning of the error.


Can anyone help or recommend a suggestion?
