BDR-208M issue: won't even show up!

Hi all,

I’m running a 2010 Mac Mini with 2.40 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 8GB RAM bootcamped into 32-bit Windows 7 Ultimate Edition. I recently ordered a Pioneer BDR-208MBK after extensive searching through this forum as well as others (though mostly this one!) with a Vantec USB 2 to SATA adapter to plug it in and use as an external drive. I set it up, however, and nothing shows up! I looked under “My Computer” and don’t even see the drive, even when I put a DVD in it. I hear the drive boot up and the disc spin and then…nothing. Is there something I’m missing? Do I need to be running some software to even access the drive?

Furthermore, I was under the impression that I would be able to access the drive on the Mac OS side of my computer. Is that not the case either (as I’ve gotten the same result there too)?

Thanks,
Casponos

UPDATE: I’ve also checked Device Manager. Not there either.

sigh Turns out it totally was user error. I had a loose cable.
