Is it possible to replace the optical drive with a SSD?


My MacBook is the 2.0 GHz Core Duo black version.

I have searched online but not found any answers regarding the Core Duo MacBooks. If possible what should I keep in mind before buying the SSD to make sure it will be compatible? I would need an enclosure for the SSD, any ideas on where to get those? I have searched these two websites but am still not sure if this process works for Core Duo MacBooks:

http://www.macsales.com/ - They don't seem to offer any solutions for older MacBooks

http://www.mcetech.com/ - They offer enclosures for the black and white MacBooks, which according to them includes an ATA - SATA adapter.

Has anyone tried this??

Since you've given a very generic identification of your laptop (on the order of 6 different machines fit that minimum description) I'll give you a generic answer: YES - provided you purchase a kit, and not try to cobble one together.

If this Answer is helpful please remember to return and mark it Accepted.

Thank you for your answer machead3, but my MacBooks processor is a "Core Duo" not "Core 2 Duo". I think there are only two MacBooks that fit my description and the only difference is the color :p

I have received information from http://www.mcetech.com/ that their enclosures are compatible with my computer so I don't have to cobble one together myself ;)
