I was having problems burning DVDs' from iDVD and it turned out my burner is at fault.

I have a 27 inch iMac using a OPTIARC DVD RW AD-5680H. Where can I buy a replacement in UK? I have seen these with SATA is this the correct cable for my mac?

I have also tried the Mac superdrive but my imac wont recognise it as it's been configured for macbook air and mini mac. I know I can "make" it work by doing something or other in com.apple/plist, but dont want to mess about in there.

I'm also told an external drive would work but does "mac compatible" mean only for air and mini as their own superdrive is or all macs?

 

Any help appreciated before I convince myself mac is no better than windows pc!

imac, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
