    Is it possible that you can use the two superdrives to do the same task, in the same application, at the same time?

    For example; uploading two cd's to iTunes at the same time? Burning two cd's in Toast? Copying two DVD's to your hard drive using Handbrake?

    :confused: :)

    Only if the application were specially written to address two drives in parallel. Don't know of any that are, short of the custom embedded code in CD/DVD duplicators.

    You'll need to make copies (copy & rename) of the applications to run multiple instances. It CAN be done. Some programs can access multiple drives though.

    Oh and in before Multimedia.
