Just curious, did you ever get anywhere with this? From other places I've read that disabling "put hard disks to sleep" in the energy settings can fix this. But I need to put disks to sleep, as my machine is on 24/7, and I have four HDDs in...Quick question for folks on this board: any issues with the optical drive disappearing? I've had fairly persistent issues. Typically what I'll do is rip a movie from a DVD in the optical drive (a bluray-read, dvd-write capable drive connected via AHCI using ATAPI, bd-rom hl-dt-st bd-re UH10LS20 LG drive), the rip will finish, I'll right-click the drive on the desktop and select eject, and the disk will disappear but the drive bay won't open. After that, the OS doesn't even see the drive any more. If I force the drive bay open and put in a different disk nothing happens, the drive just dies. In fact I think it loses power. I seem to have to reboot. Sometimes when I reboot the drive will get power but disks won't mount. Time passing and reboots are the only resolution.
I followed the directions in this guide, so I didn't install any ahci_thirdparty sata whatever kexts.
Could it have anything to do with how the BIOS is set up with respect to UEFI/legacy? Frustrating issue. Thanks.
