I have a blue n white g3 (with g4 upgrade card). A while ago i pulled out the cd-rom drive and installed an apple compatible dvd-rom drive, but that recently has stopped working and i need to replace it. I'm looking for something cheap dvd-rom wise and needed to know if any atapi drive will work, or are some drives not compatible with macs....... i just want to get somethingt cheap n used off ebay and most shiz there doesn't reeally have specs on mac compatibility. thanks

Go to http://www.xlr8yourmac.com for a drive compatibility database.

You can buy from OWC ( http://eshop.macsales.com ). They are a Mac reseller.

Also try http://www.newegg.com for cheap drives and fast shipping. You could get a combo CD-RW/DVD drive for a pretty good price. Be sure to read the user reviews.
