Help Finding Optical Drive Flex Cable for A1200
So, I am having a very hard time trying to find an optical drive flex cable for my old iMac. It’s an A1200, last of the white Macs. Of course Apple decided to change the flex cable for this model, making it different than the rest, so I can only seem to find results for the smaller models anymore. What I want to know is if anyone here knows where I can find this cable, as without it, it really sets the computer back because I can’t do a lot of things without it ie. booting windows, linux, etc. Apple’s firmware won’t allow me to boot from a USB flash drive or Disc Drive obviously so I have to find this cable. I seem to see it on sites like this but I don’t know whether or not they’re trustworthy.
Some of these sites seem very similar and appear very often in search results, just wasn’t sure where to go in terms of finding it. I don’t know if these sites are good or if someone has the part elsewhere but if anyone can give me any info on where to find this part I’d really appreciate it.
