Superdrive SATA or IDE UJ 857D

I'm trying to change out the superdrive on my 2.33 Macbook

pro, The model in it is a UJ 857D.

Do you know if my machine would have a SATA interface or does it have an IDE interface from manufacture.

All the research I've done has left me empty of the

info. Short of taking it apart before I'm ready to repair it.

Thanks for your time

to 2008 models used a IDE / Parallel ATAPI / Ultra DMA Mode4 - there's no shortage of new/used DL and non-DL drives that could go in that case. You can obtain them here or elsewhere.
