Uses ANY 9.5mm SuperSlim Slot Loading Optical Drive
While an extremely attractive option for MacBook® and MacBook Pro owners looking to retask a removed Apple® SuperDrive®, the OWC SuperSlim for Apple SuperDrive is also a great choice for ANY 9.5mm optical drive... even those with mounting tabs! So whether you choose an enclosure kit to build your own solution, or select an OWC pre-configured solution, the OWC SuperSlim for Apple SuperDrive offers stylish, highly portable disc read/write capabilities for your specific need.

*Disc read/write capabilities vary depending on installed drive. Apple's DVD Player application only works with an internal optical drive or the Apple's external SuperDrive. To play DVDs with your SuperSlim drive, we recommend the free VLC Player, which can be downloaded from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
