    Well like all 2006 iMac's, my superdrive has been out of commission. I have been looking for months not trying to find a replacement part and found no luck. This is the drive that is stated on my 24” iMac (2.16GHz Core 2 Duo):

    PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-K06:

    Firmware Revision: Q609
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
    Cache: 2000 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO
    Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds


    Does anyone know where I can find this part? I know you can find an external for cheaper but I refuse to believe that this part doesn't exist out there.

    Also, is this the same part?: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Appl...medium=shoppingengine&utm_campaign=productads

    The part number reads the same as what is in the specs but it says it is for a Mac Mini or powerbook. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Just did a google search.....
    Deleted what I found as all except OWC were out of stock. Email them to see what they say.
    You might be better with an external as taking apart a iMac is a royal PITA!
