the superdrive on my Imac G4 has died!! I´m about to take it to an Apple Store so they can put a new one.
Now i don´t want that to happen to my Ibook´s superdrive!!
For my Imac I used the MAXELL DVD lens cleaner, although i probably used it after the Superdrive was damaged it did help me in certain occasions. On the DVD lens cleaner box, there´s a warning saying that it shouldn´t be used on notebook computers. So what can i use to clean the lens on my Ibook Superdrive.

The lens really shouldn't require much in the way of "cleaning" in most cases. I've used my iBook daily for close to 3 years and have not had a single problem with the drive. I also have a Power Macintosh G3 AIO that was built in 1998, and while that optical drive is a CD rather than DVD drive, it has never been "cleaned" or maintained in any way either.


Do you drive a Civic, Del Sol, or Integra & want more power & tighter steering feel? Click here for my inexpensive DIY Power-Steering Removal Kits.
