    Can any one tell me what combo and superdrive can be used to replace a broken one in a 12" powerbook g4 1ghz? Does any combo or superdrive work that are the original specs (like the combo drive being 24/12/8)? I tried looking online for one, but with no luck. Does any one know a good place to buy one from for pretty cheap?

    Thanks a lot!

    i'd look on OtherWorldComputing or PBfixit for replacement drives. they aren't the cheapest things though. :(

    Will any slot loading optical drive fit and be compatible?

    While your machine is opened up

    You should think about also replacing the HD if its an original 80 gig Toshiba. They have a high incidence of failure.

    If you don't want to do it yourself try http://www.powerbookresq.com/
    They did good work replacing my failing harddrive in my 12" powerbook. They also sell self service parts.
