Features

Faster than a speeding bullet!

More powerful than a locomotive! Look up in the sky! It's a bird…It's a plane…It's SuperDrive! BadDrives take warning: able to write DVD-R at 8x, SuperDrive has the speed and strength to annihilate the competition.

NOTE: SuperDrive vulnerable to KryptoniteDiscs.

The MacBook/MacBook Pro 15" 8x SuperDrive does not include the metal mounting bracket or the SuperDrive data ribbon cable since they're easily transferred from your original optical drive. Anyway, when you've got a drive this Super, any extras are adding glitter to gold, right?

The SuperDrives are labeled as UJ-857-C, UJ-867, or GSA-S10N. The optical drives are interchangeable, and therefore compatible with each other.

The tools required for installation differ per model. Please refer to your specific installation guide below for a more accurate and up-to-date list of required tools.

My Problem

I wanted to install Ubuntu on my 2006 MacBook (2,1) and run it side by side with Mac OS X, but my optical drive failed, so I could not get Ubuntu loaded.

My Fix

I ordered a new optical drive from ifixit.com as well as new battery (which has died long ago, but I never did anything about it). I also ordered . . .

My Problem

I have a MacBook Pro that I have had for about 4 years, which for me is a record. It just won't die. And the pieces that do die, places likeifixit make it so easy to replace. My SuperDrive decided it would no longer read DVD's or DVD-DL's. Ordered one, and 10 minutes later the problem was solved! A . . .

My Problem

My Fix

Easy to replace - but also very easy to lo . . .

My Problem

The DVD player in my wife's early 2008 MacBook Pro stopped playing DVD's reliably. We RV full-time, and her computer is her TV. She watches 4 to 6 DVD's a week, and a new computer wasn't an option. (A new Mac wouldn't have a DVD drive anyway!)

My Fix

Repair was pretty easy. I've worked on this model before, . . .

My Problem

The SuperDrive would not accept a disk.

My Fix

The repair went very smoothly.

My Advice

Step 10 of the repair guide suggests you remove the ribbon cable attaching the SuperDrive connector to the logic board. I found this to be unnecessary. After removing the three screws holding the drive in place, I was able to lift . . .

My Problem

I had a CD stuck in my CD/DVD drive so I called Apple support and they talked me through all the remedies, none of which worked. So then I made a Genius Bar appointment and they got the CD out but then I had an awful, continuous noise (the sound of the drive trying to eject) and the drive no longer . . .
