This drive enclosure requires a 5.25″ SATA (Serial ATA) Slim 12.7mm tall drive mechanism. Please make sure that the drive you wish to use with this enclosure is compatible.
*disc read/write capabilities vary depending on installed drive
**This enclosure is also compatible with 12.7mm slot-loading SATA optical drives, but it is designed with a tray-loading drive in mind. If you install a slot-loading drive, such as an Apple SuperDrive from a 2009-2010 Mac mini or 2009-2011 iMac, the unit will look "naked" due to the lack of a front bezel, but will function correctly.
