As far as I understand it halvor
said. he took a DVD drive out of an older
PowerBook, and put it in his A1138 that did not have an optical drive.
He has not said whether he also fitted the optical drive ribbon flex cable out of the older
PowerBook and put it in the A1138 - which as far as I am aware would make for an incompatibility
with the hardware as he would almost certainly then have the incorrect ribbon flex cable for the A1138
to test the DVD drive from his older
That's the reason for my comment #4halvor
has not commented, up to this point, as to whether the flex cable is the issue as yet, but halvor
does not seem to be having much success with other comments already suggested.
