OWC like Video guide to installing SSD in Mac Mini.
I was wondering if there is a link to a seemless video guide to installing an SSD in a Mac Mini or should I pay a technician?
Edit: While I am at it. Can the Mini handle 8 GB of RAM?

8 GB RAM in a MINI
I will be installing 8GB RAM into my late 2009 Mini soon. Why soon. Because I bought an OWC 256 SSD and also a Momentus XT 500GB for a second drive to replace the space where the optical drive currently sits. But, the only problem is that I cannot find the cables iFixit references in its How to Install 1TB into a Mini (meaning a 2009 Model).
Real frustrating so far. iFixit said that their supplier why back when no longer has the 2 cables they say you need.
Pretty quick I will just install the RAM and SSD and use the 500 as an external drive with the case I got from OWC.
Trust this helps.
P.S.-If anybody knows where to buy a 6 pin Slimline SATA power cable to 4 pin Molex power cable, I'm all ears.

Figure I just use this thread for a few more general questions.
The Superdrive is covered under Applecare warranty right? Is buying the MBA Superdrive better than buying Applecare for the Mini?
Good to know it can handle 8 GB of memory.

As the Hammer from Finland noted somewhere in another thread, other external optical drives are cheaper than the MBA SuperDrive if you do not already own one.
