The MCE OptiBay Hard Drive replaces the internal SuperDrive of your Mac mini with a high performance hard drive or SSD (Solid State Disk) providing up to 2 TB of additional internal storage capacity!
*IMPORTANT: To determine which Mac mini you have go to "About This Mac" under the Apple menu in the upper left corner of your screen. (You are on your Mac, aren't you?) In the window that appears please verify the type of Memory you have and make the appropriate selection in the "To be installed into" field above.
Optical Drive OptionsIn order to maintain the CD/DVD read/write functionality of the original internal optical drive replaced by the OptiBay Hard Drive, you can choose to include a Portable USB 2.0 Optical Drive Enclosure Kit into which you can install the SuperDrive you removed from your Mac mini. This slim external USB 2.0 enclosure transforms your optical drive into a bootable, bus-powered SuperDrive just as compatible with iTunes, iDVD and Finder Burning as before. And you're able to use this drive when and where you need it.
You can also choose the MCE External DVD-/+R/RW USB 2.0/eSATA "SuperDrive" to instead have the functionality of a higher-speed double-layer CD/DVD reader/writer at your disposal in a more stationary desktop form factor.
