Can I use the iMac slot loader cd-dvd rom on a standard pc? If so, what about drivers?

Welcome to Macmod! Hmmm. Not sure on that one. Why, is the question I have. Thats an old drive, that isnt very fast and may not last too much longer under heavy use. Hopefully someone else can chime in with some experience on that conversion.

Yes a iMac SL DVD or CD-ROM will work just fine in windows. Just have to do a little sodiering for the power connection. I'm working on a mod guide on how to turn a iMac/Cube CD drive to work as a standard IDE. I need to get one of thoses one time use digital cams to take pics of my modded SL DVD drive I used for my TL iMac mod.

I had one but the batterys exploded and screwed up the camera. I can still use it but it would be power though the USB cable so I would be on a short leash lol. Damn cable is only 3 feet long.

Get a USB battery charger, like they make for the iPod shuffles. That may solve your problem with keeping it juiced.
