06-29-2005, 02:02 PM #1DeSelbyGuestNew Here,Really Need Help With Imac G3 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Drive
I just won an auction for a combo drive on ebay (all details are below)
Can anyone please tell me if my imac is able to cater for this drive.
The seller says it is compatible,but I thought I'd ask here for your expert knowledge on this.
I have :
iMac G3 350mhz w/CR-ROM (slot loading) OS 9.2.2
Details of the Combo Drive :
You are bidding on a USED Powerbook Combo Drive. This drive was removed from my Powerbook G4 867 Ti and replaced with a Superdrive. This drive is in great working condition, perfect for replacement for CDROM drives or dead combo drives.
PB G4 Titanium 8x8x24 Combo CD/CD-R/CR-RW/DVD-ROM Slot Loading Drive (w/Out Brackets)
This is a GENUINE Apple Part, and will work with Apple desktops and laptops that use a slot-loading slim drive. Please check the Apple website for compatibility. The cost of this drive elswhere is anywhere from $160-290!!! Get this great drive here for much less!

I am also including a black bezel from a different drive (may or may not be compatible with this drive), so you can install it in a different type of computer or laptop, such as a windows or linux box, and it will have a front on it. If you do this, you will need to buy (somewhere else) the appropriate slim-drive adapter. the bezel is not needed for powerbook use.
