    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    It should work since it is a USB 2.0 device. What version of Arch are you using?

    If you plug the drive in and install a CD/DVD, does Arch see/mount anything? Are you trying to read, or write with the drive?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
