I've finally got around to installing a CD-ROM drive on my Performa 6100. I've got the drive sled, but apparently the front bezel is specific to a particular make of drive. Has there ever been a project to make one such for a generic CD-ROM drive?

There were two bezels, one for the tray-loading drive and one for the caddy-loading drive. I may have a spare one of the tray-loading drive bezel. Let me check my spare parts later today.

Thanks, given the high quality of the plastic on the Performas (/s) it may not mean much in the long run. One of few lines of Apple products with self-destructing parts.

Seems like I only have spare ones for the Centris/Quadra 650, 840av and 7500. None of these will fit I'm afraid.

It's okay--I've decided to convert my Beige G3 over to dual-boot so I can run both OS 9.2 and 7.5. (MFS support is important to me in some situations). The 6100/60 is a bit fragile (I've been gluing bits and pieces back together right and left) and probably best left on the shelf. On the other hand, G3's still seem to be plentiful.
