    Like the pun in the subject line? Anyways... what's the deal with the extra thin SuperDrives in the mac pro? Where do you get these drives, it's obvious you can't put a regular sized one in there because then it wouldn't be able to slide out of the small slot on the case.

    I didn't notice before that the slots on the Mac Pro were thinner than the PowerMac G5.

    Any thoughts?

    The bezel on the drive tray can be taken off of an optical drive.

    So you can just buy a cheap OEM one and use it in your Mac Pro.

    Can I put an HD DVD or Blu-Ray drive in this thing?

    Just make sure to take the bezel off first.
