Features

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 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 . . .

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 dr . . .
