Hello, my trusty old 1,8 DP G5 tower is still humming along great, except the superdrive is dying, no write/slow read. The one in there now is a replacement panasonic OEM, however when I went to microcenter, could no longer find ATAPI/ATA DVD drives- everything is serial ATA. Myquestion is will one of these drives work with an adapter cable? I also read about a SATA PCI card, is that an option? I'd like to keep it bootable if I'm going to spend any money on it.

 

thanks
