    Slot is still there (I only have one drive) but I never bothered to look if there are rails or whatever in there. Even if not, shouldn't be a big deal. The only caveat for later drives is you need to remove the flip plate things on some drives.



    If you don't get an answer I'll open mine monday and look.

    The second slot is functional on all Mac Pros. It's a standard optical drive bay, any drive should work, but as noted, you might need to remove the front lip of the disc tray. A second optical drive will work. It has an an unused power and P-ATA / IDE connector too.
