Thinking of sticking a DVD-RW in my iMac G4

    I have an old G4 700MHz with cd-rw only. Would it be easy to exchange the drive for a dvd-rw instead? As the prices are falling, and more and more stuff come on dvd's, I'm thinking I'll have to do this soon...

    Hi from Ireland,
    If it was me, I'd buy an external DVD-RW ...... cheap and easy solution.

    Thanks for all replies! I didn't expect much attention to this thread, but this is great! :)

    The reason I want to go internal is instead of external is internal is cheaper. I mean, where do you find a $40 external superdrive?

    Edit: the xlr8yourmac link was great. thanks, TDM21. :)
