Trevor HewsonAfter functioning pretty much faultlessly throughout my recent CD-importing project, the optical drive on our 9 year old iMac now seems to have gone on strike. On being offered a disk, at the point where it should draw it in, it instead spits it out.
Unless it recovers spontaneously in the next week or so, We’ll be looking to buy an external drive so I’d be interested in any recommendations. As usual the Apple one is around £80 but third party drives are available from about £17. I don’t need an ultra-slim Ive-designed piece of aluminium artwork but would like something reasonably reliable. Now if only Siri could understand requests like that. . . .
