    I'm only really here at night.
    lookie here: www.macsales.com.....owc's website ALWAYS has great selections & reasonable prices + terrific service on mac stuff.......go for any of the Pioneer drives, many of which were OEM models over the past few years, so they have the right firmware to be natively supported in OS X 10.3 & up :)

    I've had 4-5 of them over the past several years in a variety of G3's G4's & G5's..... neveranottaproblemo !

    In my experience, ANY name brand DVD drive purchased from anywhere will work.

    Using a G4, just make sure it's an IDE model. If you want USB it's going to be more, $30-50 for a 5.25" enclosure, $20-40 for a drive

    Newegg, Tigerdirect, Best Buy, etc, etc..

    +1 for Pioneer
