Can I replace my Optical Drive with a Hard Drive Enclosure

MacBook 13" 2.13 GHz (Mid 2009)

Hi folks

I was wonderign whether I can take out my Optical Drive and add a second hard drive. As far as it seems I cannot use the 9.5 mm PATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure as the MacBook 13" 2.13 GHz (Mid 2009) already features a SATA connector. Is that right? Add which enclosure should I get?

But will this one fit? I thought there is an additional heat sink in th new unibody and thw case wont fit


The iFixit guide says it will work.

Here's how to do it on your machine: Installing MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2009 Dual Hard Drive


But MacBook 13" 2.13 GHz (Mid 2009) is not unibody (but I can use the guide for the non unibody macbooks), as long as the enclosure fits
