Can any one tell me what combo and superdrive can be used to replace a broken one in a 12" powerbook g4 1ghz? Does any combo or superdrive work that are the original specs (like the combo drive being 24/12/8)? I tried looking online for one, but with no luck. Does any one know a good place to buy one from for pretty cheap?

Thanks a lot!

i'd look on OtherWorldComputing or PBfixit for replacement drives. they aren't the cheapest things though. :(

While your machine is opened up

You should think about also replacing the HD if its an original 80 gig Toshiba. They have a high incidence of failure.

If you don't want to do it yourself try http://www.powerbookresq.com/
They did good work replacing my failing harddrive in my 12" powerbook. They also sell self service parts.
