Someone told me start a new thread on this topic, so here I am.
Assuming the fellow who put up the pictures, is still in the neighborhood.

This is the dead drive (burner) I have. Please compare.

That was me advising a new thread in response to you question regarding a warning of some kind. What exactly is the warning?

Ha, no idea! A warning???? :eek: Beats me.

Back to business... From my picture, can you tell if my Drive (CD/DVD Burner) is compatible?

Rather then a "warning" I think it's the "alert" you mentioned in your post from the other thread that has us all curious.

"BTW, what is this "alert" I keep getting, where do I find it?
(nothing to do with my original questions.)"

Perhaps the alert could have been the red icon flag near an account name when logged in?
...the thing indicating either a reply or "like" (thumbs-up) to a post.

For as many years that I have been visiting MacRumors and asking for help, I don't have a clue of many of the features that lie in wait to be discovered.

kge420 suggested "Patt, best to start a new thread concerning this issue."
I didn't know that there is such a thing as "conversation", back in the day, we called it "Private".
Thus the #2 on my
Need new Optical Drive - which one? #2:po_O:p
