isn't that the IR sensor? Unless you use an Apple Remote, you'll not miss it...

If it's the same colour, it probably doesn't matter which way around you connect it. Probably the sensor is just a 'heat-sensitive' resitor and those normally are polarity insensitive.

Can you just slap any old slot-loading optical drive in a Mini, or does the firmware require specific types?

I think the mini will accept just about any drive you can attach to it - but with slimline drives for notebooks I've experienced problems fitting the data connector (rarely) and/or fitting the drive mechanically (more often). Before you buy a drive you should check those details.

Okies, just one more question.. I promise. :roll:

I want to patch a firmware for an optical drive to use multi-region but I have two possible firmwares with the option for CSEL (Cable Select) low or high.

I'm guessing the Mac-Mini uses slave on Cable Select which would lead me to believe 'high' would be best.

I can't be sure of that though; does anyone know for sure?


Just use the Jumper (set to Master), it doesn't matter what you set the CS to.
