Product Overview

Pioneer SuperDrives, though given to rustling (keep an eye on your RAM) and going weeks without bathing (keep an air-freshener handy), are masters of survival. When the day comes to uproot and make that long, arduous journey, you'd better hope the Pioneer is at your side. Claim-staking is inherently cut-throat, especially when it comes to settling on a suitable desk for your iMac or Mac Mini. Thank goodness the Pioneer has the durability and wherewithal to make it happen.

Though hardy, the Pioneer is no simpleton. Far from illiterate, the Pioneer reads and writes at speeds of a finely-tuned two passenger wagon, but enjoys the luxury of needing no drivers.

Requires removing ribbon cable and bracket from your current combo or SuperDrive for installation.

NOTE: Although skilled at surviving in untrodden lands, the Pioneer is not at home in iMacs or Mac Minis which formerly housed Panasonic (UJ-875) drives. Those computers have different mounting slots and require this drive to correctly attach to the optical drive bracket.

My Problem

My original 24" iMac DVD drive was jammed with a DVD inside. After reading LOTS of tips and tricks and trying them all, I still couldnt get the DVD out, and it was making a whining howling sound when I would restart, or change users on the computer. I decided to go for it and change the drive out.

My Fix

The repair was straightforward. I am pretty much a novice. I had changed out (last year) the main drive on the computer - that being my first time opening ANY computer up. Directions were simple and accurate. This was even smoother, and with my 13 year old son helping, took under an hour.

My Advice

Definitely use this website to ensure you are replacing your defective part with one that will fit! I had been ready to order a DVD drive from another site before I came across this one - and was impressed with the level of definition of exactly what drive I had, and exactly what part would replace it.

In the process itself - I recommend positioning something (or someone) to hold the computer screen up once you open it - propping it open saves you having to remove a couple more sets of cables. using the cloth gloves photographers use (from Aaaron's etc.,) was great when handing the naked screen. We didnt get any fingerprints. whiteboard markers were great for color-coding the different screw lengths (and their locations) if you worry about that sort of thing. It helps if your torx driver is magnetic too! Otherwise - pretty much a snap.

My Problem

The right fan was making a horrible sound. I am almost 70 and walk poorly, to take my MBP and Mac Mini to the Apple Store for repairs would be a major effort. I found Ifixit and ordered my parts. Wow from your shipping location in California to Manitoba, Canada took four days and both systems are repaired and working fine. I am impressed.

My Fix

The guides were very clear and accurate the taking apart was a breeze, replacement parts were exact and I saved a lot of energy at my age by being able to order on line with speedy service.

My Advice

I am just amazed to be able to locate the tutorials to show me what to do to repair buth of my computers, ability to order the parts and then be able to have success in repairing them myself. Thank you IFixit. I shall spread the word.

My Problem

For a while, the optical drive in our iMac didn't want to eject discs occasionally, which we coped with by inserting a couple of thin plastic cards while hitting the eject button. The drive eventually progressed to not reading discs at all.

My Fix

The repair was straightforward. I had replaced the hard drive previously, so it wasn't nearly as scary opening the iMac this time.

My Advice

Be careful when you are removing and replacing tiny screws, which have a tendency to run for cover inside your computer when dropped.
