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,
MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (Mid 2009 to Mid 2012) 8x SATA SuperDrive (Used)
Unibody 8x SATA SuperDrive (Post-Early 2009)
Is this a good question?
