Mac floppy drives are significantly different from standard PC floppy
drives. You definititely need a Mac style floppy drive to replace the
old one.

For a CD drive, you can generally use any drive, but the Apple
drivers for SCSI CD-ROM drives have a hard-coded list of acceptable
drive models. There are third-party drivers available commercially
to support any normal CD-ROM drive, and there is a hack for the
Apple drivers to make it work on drives that aren't in the list.
