DIY Bundle: OWC Data Doubler Kit + 1.0TB Hybrid SSD/HHD
OWC Data Doubler Kit, 1.0TB 2.5" Toshiba Solid State Hybrid Hard Disk Drive and OWC 5 Piece Toolkit

OWC Internal SSD DIY Kit
If your optical drive is going unused, why not replace it with a second hard drive and increase your storage exponentially?
This upgrade kit allows you to use the OWC Data Doubler to install the Toshiba Hybrid drive into your MacBook or MacBook Pro. This DIY kit includes all the tools necessary, coupled with our free installation videos that offer step-by-step instructions, so you can perform the entire upgrade on your own. If you find you need a little more help or just have a question, we're available 24/7 with our award winning U.S. based support.
Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger
Add significant space for storage, greater speeds for retrieval and saving of data, your machine will wake-up and boot and launch apps faster. With this much space, you have MORE than enough room to keep all your data under one roof.
Take Your Time Machine With You!
Now, with all this available capacity, you can designate one of the drives as the Time Machine backup so your Time Machine is not relying on you to remember to plug in the dedicated external drive. Use the hybrid drive as one large 1.0TB drive or partition it and designate a partition to run Time Machine.
RAID your drives for increased speed or security. RAID 0 will give you an immediate and significant speed boost - you won't believe how fast your computer wakes up and launches your apps! RAID 1 creates automatic redundancy to safeguard against primary drive failure and data loss.
Still Need an Occasional Optical?
If you decide you need occasional use of your optical drive, you can purchase the OWC SuperSlim enclosure. This is a USB 2.0, bus-powered option for users who need a lightweight, portable optical drive.
Yes, You Can Do-it-Yourself
Upgrade with confidence using the OWC DIY installation videos. OWC is committed to your success, so if you need a bit more guidance, we are available 24/7 with U.S. based customer service by phone or live chat.
Power Tip
Spin-down hard drives sooner to save battery power. Running an extra hard drive in your laptop can drain battery power faster than a single drive. But you can tell your Mac to put hard drives to sleep sooner than normal to save power.

This is an advanced tip that requires working in Terminal. For the step-by-step explanation, visit our blog.

  • MAIN BAY: A 6G SSD may be utilized in main bay (move drive or second SSD into Optical Bay*) for reliable SATA Revision 3.0 6Gb/s performance in excess of 500MB/s.

    (Model ID MacBookPro8,3) models. After successfully applying this update, your Boot ROM Version will be: MBP81.0047.B1E. Please read our very informative Blog Post for additional information.

    OPTICAL BAY: The optical bay interface may either be SATA Revision 2.0 3Gb/s (300MB/s max) OR SATA Revision 3.0 6Gb/s. There is no way to specify/order this data interface with Apple, but you can confirm what interface version your optical bay offers by using 'About this Mac, More Info, Serial-ATA' info display.

    Testing has demonstrated that Apple factory hardware does not reliably support a 6G (6Gb/s) Solid State Drive or Hard Disk Drive in the optical bay of 2011 and 2012 MacBook Pros (Model ID 8,1; 8,2; 8,3; 9,1; 9,2). If your OWC Data Doubler bundle comes with a 6G drive, you should ONLY install that drive in the main drive bay and utilize the Data Doubler to re-task your existing drive or install a new 3G SSD or HDD in the optical bay. PRE-2011 models can utilize a 6G drive in the optical bay, but will do so at a reduced 3G (3Gb/s) speed.

    MacBook Pro 13" models: Apple does not support the use of 6Gb/s drives in the optical bay. While we have observed a high rate of success using SATA 3.0 6Gb/s drives in Apple 13" bays where 6Gb/s link is present, some systems may not operate properly with this setup. For guaranteed reliability/compatibility, we suggest 6Gb/s drives be used in the main drive bay only, and 3Gb/s hard drives or SSDs be used in the optical bay when a two-drive configuration is desired. We cannot guarantee proper or successful 6Gb/s drive operation in the Apple MacBook Pro 13" optical bay.

    2008/2009 MacBook/MacBook Pro 13", 15", and 17" models. (Model IDs: MacBookPro5,1; 5,2; 5,3; 5,4; 5,5 and MacBook5,1; 6,1; 7,1) While a 6G SSD does function, it will only do so at SATA Revision 1.0 (1.5Gb/s) speeds rather that the SATA Revision 2.0 (3.0Gb/s) speed the machine can deliver. Should owners of these machines desire another SSD option, the Mercury Electra™ 3G SSD does run at the full SATA Revision 2.0 (3Gb/s) specification.

    NOTE: Apple's DVD Player application only works with an internal optical drive or Apple's external SuperDrive. To play DVDs with your removed optical drive after installing it in an external enclosure such as the OWC SuperSlim, we recommend the free VLC Player, which can be downloaded from

Rating: 5/5 Juicy Fruit! January 16, 2016 Doubling my memory using two 4GB lifetime warranty OWC chips was interesting but adding this gizmo w/1T hybrid drive to my Macbook Pro with a 128G OWC SSD results in a rocket powered entertainment machine! I very rarely burn discs anyway but I have an external OWC USB 2.0/Firewire 400 Mercury Superdrive for when I just have to copy that old Mott the Hoople LP. to a format Mama can play in her old El Dorado.Data Doubler means I have an on-board Time Machine disc also but I still use a Seagate USB 3.0 1Tb/3.5 SATA external Time Machine for those really irreplaceable family photos and a tiny little Seagate backup-to-go USB 3.0 9mm portable for swapping files while avoiding risky networks. My old eyes are fading and fingers getting creaky but with the enclosed directions I had the install complete and system working in under 30 minutes. I love this thing! I annoy some of my friends 'cuz of my boasting of the great deals I get from you making my Mac more fun while they shovel out the dough monthly just keeping their Windoze operating at all and are bullied into buying a new computer every 18 months just to feel secure. OWC extends my budget as well as my memory and storage and truly are Out of this World!

Rating: 5/5 Performs as advertised. November 23, 2014 No problem with the product but my computer had a cross-threaded screw that could not be removed with the small phillips screwdriver provided with the kit. I ended up drilling out the screw and used hot glue to secure one corner of the data doubler.

Rating: 5/5 Awesome upgrade! October 5, 2014 I recently bought a new MacBookpro mid 2012. I specifically purchased the non-retina model so I could upgrade to a 500gb SSD and install the Data Doubler with another 1TB mechanical. This worked great as I could split the ssd in 1/2 to run Bootcamp and have a ton of additional storage. The Aluminum bracket is well built and the holes all lined up with no issue. The installation video is great and makes installing this product very quick.

Rating: 5/5 product performs as expected October 5, 2014 I bought the OWC data doubler to modify my macbook pro and carry my music videos on the included toshiba hybrid 1TB drive for use during live video mixing using serato scratch live vj/dj software.. It performs well and with my Macbook pro now at 2TB capacity I carry all my music videos in my laptop instead of using an external harddrive. Less connecting wires and power adapters during my gigs. Great.

Rating: 5/5 Great product at an unbelievable price March 1, 2014 For $110 I get both the 1tb drive and the machined aluminum mounting bracket? That's nuts. The bracket fit perfectly. After the OEM drive failed I decided to go RAID 1 since I only use my superdive about once a month. The included instruction booklet is impressive, it has full color pictures and instructions for every MacBook the bracket fits.
