Hitachi-LG Data Storage

8X 9.5mm Internal DVD/CD Writer

Mac / PC / DVD Multi Recorder / Rewritable
 
Do you have a white or black MacBook or a 15" MacBook Pro with the original combo drive? Or perhaps an older 4X or 6X optical drive in it that's just not fast enough anymore? How about being able to burn dual-layer discs? This replacement Super-MultiDrive is just what you're looking for!

This Hitachi-LG Data Storage DVD/CD Writer is compatible with MacBook 13.3" and MacBook Pro 15" models prior to the late 2008 "Unibody" models. See the bottom of this page for the full list of compatible systems.
OWC Note: This is the exact same type of Super-MultiDrive that Apple uses! You can install it into your MacBook/15" MacBook Pro yourself - Check out our installation videos for assistance!

If you would like professional installation, OWC offers that service too. Please contact us for more information.

Verified Buyer
Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Brisbane QLD Australia Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Home User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Product meets all specifications June 27, 2014 A like-for-like replacement so no improvement in function (other than the DVD now works). A delightful shopping experience as always: great information on site for identifying the correct drive for my computer; competitive price; excellent instructional videos.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
