My Problem

I was replacing my optical drive with an SSD. In the process I somehow broke this fragile cable. It wasn't immediately obvious as the drive showed up correctly on the first boot, but stopped responding shortly afterwards. I first suspected the drive, but when I swapped the HD and the SSD, the troubl . . .

My Problem

Before selling my early 2011 15" MacBook Pro I wanted to remove the OWC hard drive caddy and put back the SuperDrive. In the process I lost the SuperDrive cable.

My Fix

It was easy to reinstall the optical drive. I did learn not to use the screws that came with the optical drive caddy because they are too b . . .
