    Hi folks, just need some advice on replacing my Superdrive on my MBP. It is just over 18 months old and refuses to play DVD discs which I find the most frustrating especially when trying to get on FM!

    How much are we talking for a good Super Drive which will last longer than this thing in my machine? Also anyone know where to get them from?

    Thanks in advance.

    You should be able to find a cheap external drive anywhere, but if you are specifically looking for an internal superdrive, I see loads of them on ebay.

    You shouldn't need an Apple specific drive, just some slim, slot-loading IDE drive.

    Thanks for the advice folks. To be honest I would rather some one would install it in for me who knows what they are doing, as I don't. How much are we talking?
