An external optical drive by Apple, essentially a rebranding of the MacBook Air SuperDrive.

Has anyone tried replacing the optical drive in this new version?

Last night, I ripped apart my NEW Macbook Air Superdrive only to find neither a PATA or SATA connection, but a connection being soldered right inside the drive. Anyone have any ideas about how to swap it out for a new drive, perhaps a blu-ray drive?

I can state categorically that this new drive now works on all macs though. Hooray!

I am fully aware that there is no optical drive in a MB Air, but there is one in the MB Air SuperDrive. I do state that above. That is what I am curious about.

Mine uses a Sony AD-5630-A optical drive. Make sure the drive isn't just plugged into the driver board.

I have the same drive. No way to easily disconnect the drive from the USB wiring. I expected a PATA or SATA connection.

If anyone finds a way to use another type of USB cable (or FireWire) to connect a replacement DVD or Blu-ray drive, I'd love to see it.
