Connectivity for replacing Optical to Super in a 2008 MB
by New2macGuy - 8/27/12 5:00 AM
Hello folks, I have been researching SuperDrives for my Jan 2008 A1181 Dual Core. There seem to be 3 main compatable models; GSAS10N, UJ-857C, and UJ-867A. I know they must be capped at 8xDVD and I want Dual layer ability. The UJ867A by Panasonic seems to fit what I want. Here are my 2 ?s.
1. Is the Panasonic 867A (Nov 2010) 9.5mm the best choice?
2. SATA or PATA? I know SATA is a bit faster but is that what's in there already? The 2010 new Super i am looking at is PATA, is the current Optical a SATA? And should I just try to find a SATA UJ-857C in good shape?
I know somewhere someone has already asked smthg similar but by page 20 and the CNet search yielded no answers.
Thank You for any help!
