    But works great
    Are you talking about the converter on the back of the rom for $20? Where on bizrate.com did you find it?

    But yes $20.00 + 5 or so sfor shipping and my notebook dvd-rom works perfectly.
    and someone asked, there is no master-slave-cable select option.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    Thanks for the info, but I thought you found an adapter for the imac sloat load dvd drive. You know that you can get the same adapter from cableclub.com for 8.50 + shipping?

    THAT?S ALEAYS THE SMAE MISTAKE!!!!

    ADAPTER FOR SLIM TRAY ARE DIFFERENT THAN THE ADAPTER FOR SLIM SLOT IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    On the slot in the JAE connector is turn by 180° => a std adapter will stick out....

    adapter for the tray model => 9$ @ CABLE CLUB...
    adapter for slot in model => 29$ @ allmac....


    Hope this question will not come another million time....

    that is why I was clarrifying.

    As you only see the back of the DVD/CD, with the Adaptor in place, and it doesn't actually say which it is for Imac/Laptop, tray/Slot. I thought I might save someone some money buying the wrong thing.

    Stupid as it sounds, I haven't seen them available in the UK. So I like many others would have to order from the US, for a $20 item, postage coould be near the same price again.

    So that would be $40 wasted.

    OK, this German site Lists a lot of Lappy DVDs and which ones work with their connectors.

    Not saying it answers everything, but it gives information about This adaptor.

    I have very little german, but got the jist of it. Google if you need it more accurate.

    Everybody has seen the Baber

    A UK source of some UK parts. Not necessarily cheap. but hey have stock.

    This one is British but I can't tell from the picture whether it is the same as the Baber one or the iMac one?

    Thats Excellent news. I'll check that link out cheers.

    Just posting some links, in the one place for the different adaptorsd that I've found. Wasn't necessarily a question.

    The german site has a link that points to exact models that their adaptor fits. Which I thought might be useful.
