Replacing the Optical Drive
Your Mac Pro comes with one or two SuperDrives installed in the optical drive bays.
Follow these instructions to replace your optical drive.
Contact your drive manufacturer or consult the manufacturer's website to
determine if your drive is set to cable select mode. Before installation, set the drive to
cable select mode if the manufacturer hasn't already done so.
To replace the optical drive:
Open your Mac Pro and remove the side panel following the instructions on page 28.
Lift the latch to unlock the optical drive carriers.
When the latch is down, the drives and carriers are locked
in the drive bays and can't be removed.
Pull the optical drive carrier halfway out of the optical drive bay.
Working Inside Your Computer
Slide the carrier partially
out of the computer.
Make sure the latch is up.
