Where to find data doubler for older Macbook Pro?

in Genius Bar edited March 2014

Hi everyone.


I have an old 15" Macbook Pro 2,2 (2.16Ghz C2D from 2006) running 10.6.8


I'm upgrading to an SSD and would like to remove the optical in favor of a 500-750GB HDD for my photo and music libraries.


So far, no luck.  OWC says their product won't work with macs older than 2008 vintage...


Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Matsu, I am trying to do the same thing on the exact MacBook Pro 2,2. Have you found any luck?

    I had one of these in my old 2006 Mac. I can't remember the exact model, but I think it was from these people: http://www.mcetech.com/optibay/

    Although the hard drive is SATA in these the optical is PATA, so it's not as simple a swap as in a post 2008 one.  To move the existing drive over get the cage with a PATA-SATA adapter.
