Answer to: What's the right replacement for the DVD drive?I ordered the Samsung SE-S084 8x slim drive from Tigerdirect for $50. It installed just by plugging it in and it works perfectly. It's hard to get detailed specs on this package, but I recall reading somewhere that it's compatible with mac OSX 10.4 and above. I have 10.5.8 so no problem.

Answer to: What's the right replacement for the DVD drive?After reading all the suggestions and looking at the disassembly/reassembly instructions on ifixit, I went a different route.
