OWC Videos Make Installation of Optical Drive In External Enclosure Simple

owc_valuelinesilm_gall1Despite their usefulness, Apple has been phasing optical drives out of their Mac lineup over the past few years in favor of thinner machines and digital delivery of media.

OWC offers a range of external optical solutions that pair perfectly with any Mac. And if you have a bare optical drive, OWC’s installation videos are great guides to help you install your drive in an OWC external enclosure.

Recently we released two more optical installation videos to our lineup. Check out below for our latest optical installation videos:
