Am using a MacBook Air 2013. And just bought a external cd drive from VICTECH on Amazon. The description says that it is compatible with Mac, but when I plug it in, the cd drive does not appear on my desktop. The disk slot only opens if the cd drive is connected to a laptop, and once connected to my laptop I am able to insert and remove DVDs etc: it's just nor appearing in my desktop or anything.
Different USB ports,
Works fine on the home pc.
The drive does recognise the laptop as it powers up and am able to insert and remove CDs etc, but my Mac is not registering it.
Reading the reviews on Amazon, some other customers have used it with Mac perfectly fine....

Any suggestions as to what I can try?
