Spewing! not good at all.
1. You can replace it with any drive. Liteon is the best followed by benq, imo i wouldnt use a sammy or hitachi. Check ebay or any "mod/service" store in your area, they might sell you a spare dvd drive. Just spoof away in jf.
2. If your sure the power cable was around the right way im not sure what happened
1- Yes the sight of smoke and the smell of burning plastic does not bode well.
Have ordered a replacement drive,
2- I am pretty sure, after all it has guides, so it is pretty difficult to put them in the wrong way. My main concern now is frying the new drive. I assume since the LED on CK3 is still working then unlikely that is the cause. but had a thought, I have some old generic SATA drives lying around. Can I test the CK3 on them and see if they show up under dosflash?
