Difference between optical drives in iFixit-Store?
A1286 2.66GHz 15" Unibody MacBook Pro (MB985LL-A)
my optical drive died over the last months - after reading discussions on several forums about cleaning the lens, I tried that, but now it rejects every disc (regardless whether CD-ROM or DVD) so I'm going to exchange it.
As it seems that the original Matshita UJ-868 isn't available anymore, I try to get a replacement here. Within the iFixit store, I found two drives which seem to fit:
both warning that they have different screw holes and/or a different connector.
Now the question: Are they both suitable for above-mentioned MacBook Pro?
Best regards & TIA from Germany,

If I am correct, this is your machine:
Apple MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.66 15" Mid-2010 Specs
Identifiers: Mid-2010 15" - MC373LL/A - MacBookPro6,2 - A1286 - 2353*
It's still under warranty, why not let Apple fix it for free?
