New in box!
Apple 24X Internal SCSI CD-ROM Drive, 661-1400, 678-0132. Model CR-508C. This drive will work in all Power Macs, or probably any Mac with an internal SCSI bus and an empty drive bay. Of course it can also be put into an external SCSI enclosure.
New in box! There are 3 drives in stock with consecutive serial numbers, AU1875, AU1876, AU1877. I had to open one of the boxes as my search for 661-1400 didn’t produce any results. Contact me for a shipping quote if you would like the CD box to ship inside another box.
Also available is a used Matsushita CR-508. Same drive as above, but without Apple label (no photo).

Uses a caddy
AppleCD 300 CD-ROM Drive is an internal drive using a SCSI interface. May also be called 300i or 300 Plus. These early drives use a caddy or cd carrier inserted into the drive. Models in stock are not Apple branded and are Sony drives, Model CDU561-25.
The drive pictured would be suitable for installation in an external housing or original application. Also available are modified drives that have had the volume button and headphone jack removed for probable installation in Macs or cases intended to have a tray load. All are tested to read CD’s.

While it can be used with any Macintosh with internal SCSI and a drive bay, it came as either standard or optional in the Power Mac and Performa 6100 series. Manufactured by Matsushita, CR-503-C.
