    Hi all,

    I have stupidly put a mini disc inside my iMac G3 slot loading drive. I have to remove the drive from the inside and attempt to remove the CD...I have a feeling that the drive may be damaged, so if I need a new one....can someone help me with the part number? Where would I get it? It's a CD-RW slot loading drive...

    Any of you help, is much appreciated.

    If you go to they have a very handy replacement guide. Just put in your computer's specs and it will tell you all you need to know.

    there are a few methods people try to get those things out of the slot loading drives before resorting to new drives.

    A link to the most popular methods, don't have it sorry.

    Sure someone will link or tell you.
