installed superdrive from 12"PB G4 to Mac mini problem


I installed a new superdrive into my Powerbook that supports DL DVDs. I took my old superdrive and installed it into my Mac mini in my car. Now the optical drive is not recognized at all. I read somewhere that the superdrive is made tobe a master drive but in the Mac Mini, the harddrive is the master drive which causes the problem. Can anyone confirm this and if so how can I get the Mac mini to recognize the superdrive? Thanks.
