i just removed the drive put of my 2009 MacBook pro, physically bought drives are the same except for the bracket so i did changed that one, but the plugs going into the drive are the same but the connector to the board are different so i used the cable that belongs to my a1342 . after starting up the computer i can insert and eject discs, they spin around but i still can't burn or play anything, can you perhaps tell me what to do, can i expect the same if i replace the dive with a drive from a a1342 ?thanks,mick
