Hi there,

I have a dead superdrive (PIONEER DVR-112D). It does not read or burn anything, but still apears on the system profile. Whats the best replecement option? Another Pioneer? Or should I look for something else?

I found this one the closest to the one I have:

https://eshop.macsales.com/item/Pioneer/DVR117DBK/

Is it the new version of the DVR-112D ? Will it fit my sys?

That's the dead drive on my Mac Pro:

PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D:

Firmware Revision: BC14
Interconnect: ATAPI
Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
Cache: 2000 KB
Reads DVD: Yes
CD-Write: -R, -RW
DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO
Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds

thanks,

Eduardo

I just purchased this:
http://store.mcetech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=DV...
It's $3 more but 22x instead of 20x. I think as long as it says it works in your mac it'll be fine.

Mike
