So I just received my Mini G4. Currently as we speak I'm using an external DVD drive to restore a tiger install image to the drive so i can install a fresh tiger instead of the old leopard install. The Minis DVD drive is some what functional. By that I mean it will take in discs but then just spit them out after some time, I can't hear many noises it's not making anything that sounds bad I don't know if it's failing to read or just not attempting to read.
not sure if anybody knows if the issue might be something else otherwise the default is a dead drive and thus I need a new disc drive. However a quick eBay search has basically thrown up no results, I'm in the UK, is there any place I could find a working drive?
