    From experience it should be fine, OS X is far better these days with optical drives.

    Check out www.xlr8yourmac.com, they have a pretty good compatibility database.

    I have a Pioneer DVR-112BK in a Quicksilver 2002 - it works fine. I just needed to remove the front plate for it to open the door silently.

    Hope this helps.

    Can't vouch for the 112D ... but I have the 111D and it works fine in my PM.

    Rarely coasters disks, runs fast, not as quiet as I'd like, but the early PMs are louder anyway.

    There's always PatchBurn just incase things don't work out by themselves.

    Will do, it's actually for my dad, though I'll end up installing it. He took over my old PMG4 and 'switched'.

    Should work fine.

    I will admit though, that is the scariest avatar I've ever seen.

    More than likely, you'll need this.

    It all works nicely :)

    Just installed it for my dad this evening. Very simple and straight forward, unplug one, plug in the other. OS X and apps saw it correctly straight away, no messing around necessary.
