optical drive replacement on Power PC G4, OSX 10.4

  Castlegal 21:18 01 Jun 2019

Optical drive wasn't working and ordered a replacement drive from the States. When the drive was installed, the computer wouldn't boot. Ordered another replacement drive and the same thing happened. The laptop with the old drive or without any, boots - just not with either one of the replacements. The US company insists that it's the right replacement CD/DVD drive. Any ideas?
