Although this is an Apple Rom/OEM optical drive, due to limitations of these in your specific Mac model - please note the following bootability changes:
For PowerBook G4 pre-2005 models - please note that you cannot boot from CD by holding the 'c' key down - all other functions are not affected.
For PowerBook G4 Titanium models - booting from this optical drive requires choosing the drive as the startup disk under system preferences, then restarting machine.
Further note, this does not in any way impact read or write capabilities of this drive in your specific Mac model.
For 12" G4 "Aluminum" systems, professional installation is highly recommended
