Can the DVD-ROM drive be upgraded?

Can the DVD-ROM drive be upgraded? That is, can I use a DVD Combo or Super Drive in the Mercury 400MHz or 500MHz computer?

Thanks for any more DVD upgrading.

Thanks for your reply. I was concerned if the ribbon cable was the same for a CD-RW/DVD-RW (DL?) drive or if there was any other mechanical differences that would prevent installation. Thanks again for your fast input!


Oops? I ran into a stumbling block on using a Combo or Super DVD Drive in a Mercury 400MHz or 500MHz computer? The Help Page said: "A different cable is required to connect a Combo drive to the logic board.". Unfortunately, there's No Link anywhere to an explanation of where to Find such "different cables"?

Help! - Any suggestions?


For the correct cable contact iFixit directly here and tell them what you want to do:
