    I need to get a replacement CDROM or DVDROM drive for my G3 Blue and White. Is there a particular model that I need to get or will any standard internal CDROM or DVDROM drive work?

    Any standard drive will work but Pioneer, Sony, and NEC drives have the highest compatibility. The B&W doesn't need the CD/DVD drive door to be removed.

    lookie @ www.xlr8yourmac.com for your answers. Their drive database has 1000's of user reports on compatibility, bootability ect ect.....some drives/brands will NOT work at all, even with hacked drivers, firmware flashes ect, so read up on them first :p

    I like to buy from macsales.com. They are a Mac supply seller which sells good stuff. You will get a compatable drive if you buy from them for sure.
