Features

USB connectivity for your extra optical drive.

After swapping out your optical drive for a sweet dual hard drive setup, don't just stow old Mr. Opty in a drawer — give it a new life with this cable!

There are two ways you can utilize this cable:

  • Use it to connect a freshly extracted SATA optical drive to your computer via USB.
  • Alternatively, you can use this cable and our dual drive enclosure to use a second 2.5" hard drive via USB. It's not the prettiest solution, but it works in a pinch.

Note: Video DVDs will not play through the built-in DVD Player app in OS X. DVD Player does not recognize external DVD drives. We recommend using another player, such as VLC, to play video DVDs through this cable.
