Welcome to the Mac Forums.

I would personally avoid buying one from eBay unless you're positive that it will work and if it doesn't, can return it for a refund.

The best place to buy a superdrive for your MB is from the folks at Other World Computing. They're Mac specialists and only sell the best in Mac hardware and memory. Go to this LINK.

I am all about ebay I think it is a great place to buy parts but you computers superdrive might be pata not sata. I am not sure. Click the apple logo in the top left -> about this mac-> more info and check if it is listed under Serial ATA or just ATA. If it is just ATA you will need a different drive than the one you found.


Yes that is a grizzlycorn

Cheers for your help mate. I had a look and it is ATA. Any idea where I could pick one up, looking for a dual layered burner.
