OWC Data Doubler
Optical to SATA Hard Drive Converter Bracket Solution
Includes everything needed to replace your optical drive with a second
hard drive or Solid State Drive
Add up to an additional 1.0TB of internal storage. Add a Solid State Drive (SSD) for near instantaneous boot
and app load. Even create a RAID array! Includes bracket, 5 piece toolkit, screws, and detailed
installation guide for complete all in one solution.
Configuration flexibility is yours when you replace your MacBook or MacBook Pro's internal SuperDrive with
the OWC Data Doubler. This custom engineered blue anodized aluminum bracket with attached PCB circuit
board comes ready to mount any 9.5mm tall 2.5" SATA hard disk drive and even Solid State Drives.
Then, just install the entire assembly into a MacBook or MacBook Pro 5.25" optical drive bay.
OWC Data Doubler makes it easy to custom design how you want your internal storage to
perform. Installed drives are recognized like any other high speed SATA storage device
and can be setup and partitioned using the Apple Disk Utility Program.
Just a few of the configuration options you can enjoy with Data Doubler:
Creating an individual volume with its own desktop icon.
Combining a new drive with the existing internal drive for one larger volume (SPAN).
Combining a new matching drive with existing internal for high-performance RAID-0 Stripe volume.
Configuring a new drive as a Time Machine™ backup drive.
Formatting one drive for the Mac OS and the other dedicated for Windows.
Choose here as option your enclosure for your superdrive so you can use it external.

Special compatibility notes related to use of this product with 6Gb/s SSDs in the following machines:
2011 MacBook Pro 15" (Model ID MacBookPro8,2)
2011 MacBook Pro 17" (Model ID MacBookPro8,3)
OPTICAL BAY: The optical bay interface in these machines may either be SATA Revision 2.0 3Gb/s 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/link speed version your optical bay offers via the Apple System Profiler.
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 MacBook Pros (ModeI ID8,1; 8,2; 8,3). 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 MacBook Pro 15" (MacBookPro 5,1; 5,2; 5,3; 5,4; 5,5 and MacBook 5,1)
While a 6G SSD does function in a 2008 MacBook Pro 15" and 13" Macbook, 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.
