    Hi all-

    I know this has sort of been addressed in other ways, but this is specific...

    I have a late-'07 MacBook Black 2.16gHz, with a dead SuperDrive.

    I also have a dead iBook G4, containing a UJ845-C SuperDrive.

    I have found everyone's varying opinions on the UJ-845. The question is, to get the MacBook back functioning, is there any good reason why I could not cannibalize the UJ845 out of the iBook and install it in the MacBook?

    If you want to know why, I'm like Bach. Dead baroque.

    Too tall. The 845 is 12.5mm and the 857 in the MacBook is 9.5mm.
