    Looking forward to be able to test it this weekend or the next maybe.

    My Mini is in pieces (or only not fully put back together) since the DVD drive that came in it were borky, then I got another one with the exact same problem. The lens is so hard to move that the driving mechanism protects itself by the spring release (everything cleaned and lubricated)..
    At the best, I was able to read (with dd) about 2GB from the mac install disk.

    In worst case, this is a very common problem which have not been researched enough (and when the drives were widely available they were just thrown away and replaced), so I might have three more broken ones on the way..
