      contact The adapter p/n you are looking for is a 820-1050-a (this is the apple part number) I think the allmac p/n is BRD-4525 or BRD-0071. Should be about $20 if they still have them. look at my site for more info. you have to do a little soldering for the power wires, but the pics on my site shows what it should look like. Let me know if you have any dramas.

        You can use a standard laptop CDROM adapter (~$6) but since Apple has their connector upside down, it'll stick way out on the side.
