External DVD (USB) not recognised
Running 3.0.1 firmware and patched with ATV-XBMC-Launcher 3.2.1 and NitoTV 0.8.3, I have no problem with regular USB storage (e.g. hard drives) but not with my USB DVD drive.
With the DVD plugged in, a diskutil list shows no additional drives.
The drive is getting power, and with a DVD disk it spins up and down again continuously.
How do I go about troubleshooting the issue?
Here's the contents of /System/Library/Extensions :
AppleAltiVecDVDDriver.bundle GeForceVADriver.bundle IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
AppleHDA.kext IOBluetoothFamily.kext IPFirewall.kext
AppleSMBIOS.kext IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext SMARTLib.plugin
AppleTCOWatchdog.kext IOCDStorageFamily.kext System.kext
AppleVADriver.bundle IODVDStorageFamily.kext cddafs.kext

Nito, thanks for replying. And terrific work - thanks to you I can mount my NAS. How can I check whether or not my recovery.dmg is 1.0 or not? My atv is second hand....

I had two problems :
My USB powered DVD drive just refused to work with the aTV
