    That will not work, you will need an external one. Even if you did find a slot loading one (and you wont) you can't open the iMac without voiding your warrantee.

    What do you mean, why can't you just throw it into an external enclosure like Lacie does and connect it via USB or Firewire?

    Well, if you find an enclosure, I personally didn't know they made them for disc drives.

    That exact drive in an external FireWire case works perfectly for me on my aging G4/Dual 450 (upgraded to be a dual 1.0).

    I used a peecee I had lying around to update the firmware - you have to connect to the peecee via USB or by internal ATA - then installed it on my Mac.

    The kext you need is available here:

    And more good info and label artwork is available here:
