The superdrive in my PB G4 ejects CDs/DVDs a couple of seconds right after I insert them in. So it seems like it is broken. I would like to replace the superdrive with just a normal cd/dvd player, which drive will work with my pb? Thanks.

Can you please be more specific about the PowerBook IE 15" 1.5 or PowerBook Ti400 or PowerBook 12" 867

Thanks

It makes a difference!

If you're brave, you can buy a replacement drive here and replace it yourself. The instructions to replace it are on that same website: www.ifixit.com Otherwise any external drive will work just fine via USB or Firewire.
