My Problem

The optical drive needed replacing. As long as I had the Mac mini opened I decided to also upgrade the hard disk.

My Fix

To my shock everything worked once I was done and there weren't any screws left over. It was nerve wracking, the Mac mini isn't designed for home repairs. If I knew beforehand how difficult it would be I probably wouldn't have tried. Thankful for the step-by-step instructions by iFixIt.

My Advice

Read all of the instructions before ordering. I only read the instructions for hard disk replacement, not the optical drive. Also, be aware that the iFixIt instructions only show you how to take something apart, you follow them in reverse to put it back together. The problem is that there aren't any hints for when you work in reverse. I wish I took some photos on how things fit together before I took some of the steps before taking it apart. Also, I didn't really need the 54 Bit Driver Kit, I already had 6 and 8 Torq drivers, but it is a really nice small driver set and I am glad to have it.

My Problem

My Optical drive would not read a CD and it made a horrible noise. I used the guide and opened the case to find a few of the tiny gears from the original drive had fallen out. It was obvious that one of my children had tried to insert more than one CD in the drive.

My Fix

I ordered a used drive, used the guide provided and low and behold the problem was fixed and I am back to burning my CD's. Took me about 30 minutes to complete the repair

My Advice

Keep your toddlers away from your computer systems. The repair tool kit was a big help since I usually dont work on anything with parts and screws that small. I did find it was easier to remove the chassis to replace the optical drive in order to get to the screws that hold the drive interface board on.

My Problem

Optical drive was going out, only reading discs half the time.

My Fix

Very smoothly, much easier than I had anticipated.

My Advice

Everything is pretty straightforward once you get the outer case off and start digging around inside. Just make sure you keep track of all the parts and be very careful when removing the wifi antennas. The clips that hold them in seem very flimsy, apparently snapping one by mistake would result in having to replace then internal frame as well.
