    But never having done so, I risk making a mistake (too many screws), etc..

    If you'd prefer to have it fixed . . . if you're prepared to send it to me I'll replace the drive for cost of a replacement DVD-RW-DL or a cheaper CDRW/DVD-ROM drive and you can pay me for just that and the cost of a courier to/from my address in UK? :-?

    Send me P.M. if you're interested in this alternative? 8-)

    Replacing an optical drive in a PowerBook is a fairly simple procedure really, so if you decide to want to try yourself then I would only encourage you to do so, as long as your competent with a small Philips head, and torx head screwdriver. 8-D
