Question: External DVD drive not working post-Mojave update
Ever since I updated to Mojave, my external DVD drive no longer works. I am using a Late 2016 MBP w/ Touch Bar (4 Thunderbolt 3 ports). When I plug the DVD drive in, I can tell that it makes the disc spin, but it no longer shows up in Finder (i.e., the drive/disc never mount).
Here is what I've already tried:
1.) Double checking finder preferences to make sure external drives will show up
2.) Trying the DVD drive on another computer (PC). It works on PCs, so the drive isn't the problem.
3.) Trying different USB ports on the MacBook
The same drive always worked before Mojave. I'm wondering if Mojave reduced the power available for USB accessories.
Anyone else having this problem? Any solutions?
PS: Yes, DVDs are antiquated at this point, but I have no choice in the matter.
