The OWC Data Doubler Optical to SATA HD Converter Bracket for Mac Laptops is an exceptional tool if you want to replace your MacBook or MacBook Pro's internal SuperDrive with your own slim 2.5" SATA hard drive or solid state drive.* The converter bracket is made from black anodized aluminum and comes with a PCB circuit board. The circuit board can mount any 2.5" SATA HDD or SDD that's also 9.5 mm tall. It's compatible with SATA 1.5Gbps, 3Gbps, and 6Gbps drives.

OWC makes the process of installing the converter bracket and replacing your Mac's original optical drive easy. The entire converter bracket assembly fits into a MacBook or MacBook Pro 5.25" optical drive bay.

    Data Doubler Optical to SATA HD Converter Bracket for Mac Laptops is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I installed the adapter using the clear directions and pictures supplied with the adapter. Rebooted my MBP and it is just wonderful... The only concern issue is really nothing at all, but I am old school where a drive needs to be secured on both sides, and the adapter only has screws on one side. But, really, the drive is quite secure and once you button up the MBP, the drive is not going to move, so this is not really an issue at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved the problem I originally bought a cheap Chinese knockoff for a fraction of the cost, Needless to say, when I had my computer wide open and ready to screw the SSD into the optical bay drive bracket, I found the cheap component to be worthless. I ordered this OWC product, after their super drive external converter worked perfectly, paid for rushed shipping and solved the problem within a minute.The moral, don't buy knockoffs of specialty items.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Caddy for Macbook Pro Mid 2010 Installation was fairly straightforward. Anyone with basic computer knowledge will understand the steps needed. The necessary tools also came in the box which was a nice touch. I opted to get this unit over the generic *caddy available for about half the price and I'm very glad I did. The quality and fit were perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Upgrade Added an SSD as my main drive and put my old Hard Drive in the Optical Bay. Don't use the CD Drive that much. Install was a piece of cake. Now I have more space for files/documents.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as it should! Bought this to replace the optical drive with the stock 500GB drive that came with my 2012 macbook pro, stuck a 240G sandisk SSD in the original hard drive bay. works like it should only problem i had was a stripped one of the tiny screws getting the optical drive out, this has nothing to do with the product but should be know those little screws can be damaged easy so take your time!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Install and New Life for an Old Laptop! Super easy install following the OWC videos on their site. I dropped a new SSD in a 2009 MacBookPro to breathe a little extra life into it. This absolutely worked perfectly to drop an SSD in and still keep the old Hard Drive as storage in the machine. Optical Drives are really a thing of the past now and this was the perfect answer!
