    I want to upgrade my dvd burner in my G4 1.25 17 inch imac, will any internal pata drive work in there or does it have to be a special drive?

    Thank you

    Any IDE drive should work. Best to look online for compatable drives such as MacUpgrades :)

    Pioneer drives are what were standard in the iMac G4 and pretty much any of them should be compatible. It's been a few years since I upgraded the DVD drive in my iMac G4, but it was recognizes and supported right from the get go as I recall.
