Ask Max: Installing A Superdrive in my iBook

Asked on 07/26/2006:

I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade my combo drive in my 12-inch iBook G4 to a Superdrive.


You certainly can have that work done. MCE Technologies makes a variety of Mac optical drive upgrades. The replacement Superdrive drive costs around $150 but there is the additional cost of labor to install it. PowerMax charges $90 an hour for that kind of labor and it will take a full hour. Most mechanically skilled people can upgrade an optical drive in a PowerBook, but with iBooks you need to know what you are doing. Many iBook screws are different sizes and it has to be reassembled in the right order for everything to fit.Upgrades are available but seek the help of a professional.
