Optical Drive for iMac G3 Slot

What is the size of the drive is it 9.5mm or 12.7mm?

And will this work?

I know it doesn't say it is compatible but it is a slot loading drive compatible with osx.

No thats not going to work. Well, it will work interface wise, but it won't fit correctly. That drive is way too small. The iMac drives are also slot loading, but much larger. I'm honestly not sure where to get drives that size in modern day technology. You might have to look around a bit.
