I have an Apple 600i CD-ROM model CR-504-K with Alpha Server 4100 running OpenVMS 6.2-1H3. Now CD-ROM is error
I replace it using Apple 600i CD-ROM model CR-504-C
is Apple 600i CD-ROM model CR-504-C compatable with Alpha Server 4100 running OpenVMS 6.2-1H3?
Thanks you very much for your help

I know nothing, but that sounds like a small difference. (Is the
color different?) How old is the CR-504-C? Do you know if this drive

It may be. If I wanted to know, then I'd try it.
My (old) notes suggest that I had a "Gateway CDRSCS014ABWW"
(Matsu**bleep**a CR-506-B, 8X) and a "Panasonic LK-MC606B" (Matsu**bleep**a
CR-508, 24X) working in an old VAXstation (3100 model 38?), so I would
guess that an Apple-branded CR-504-C would work, especially if an
Apple-branded CR-504-something_else did, but I'll let you decide what my
guess is worth.
If the CR-504-C has a block-size jumper, then you might get a better
result if it's set to 512. Again, I'd run the experiment.
