Ibook combo drive into a G4 titanium powerbook 500mhz
Can anyone tell me if the combodrive from my G4 iBook 933mhz machine will fit into my old G4 Titanium power book 500mhz which only has a dvd rom drive in it.
I have just bought a superdrive for the iBook and was hoping to use the combo instead of just tossing it out.

No it won't work. The Powerbooks have the 12mm? optical drives. The ibooks are the smaller size. Techound is correct that the G3 ibooks are tray-loading while all the G4s were equiped with slot-loading drives.
Don't toss that combo drive, it's worth a few bucks on ebay .

Here is a link to the ebay page,
I did google it and it did say they would fit.
If not then back on the bay.
