    Default HDD to Replace SuperDrive?
    I know it's possible ( How to Install a Solid-State Drive in Your MacBook) to install a 2.5" SSD or HDD in place of the SuperDrive (with the help of a braket) but I was wondering if anyone knew whether a 3.5" SATA HDD would fit into the empty SuperDrive area, with no brakets or anything? Would the SATA connecters line up? I would like to know before I void my warranty to do this Thanks in advance!


    I found out that the connectors for the SuperDrive are proprietary. As soon as my Torx screwdriver comes in the mail, I'll try my idea anyways, and post the results here.

    If it doesn't work, then I found a knockoff of the OptiBay on Amazon for $17, along with a DVD drive enclosure that works with the SuperDrive for under $20, and 500GB 2.5 inch HDD for around $60. Not a bad deal considering the original OptiBay and SuperDrive enclosure are $99!
