    Early 2009 mini A1283

    Is there a converter to install in place of optical drive to house a second hard drive?

    Is the optical a IDE bus or SATA?
    Thank you.

    Yup, adapters are available. :) My favorite source for such items is Other World Computing; here's a link to their adapter bracket for the 2009 Minis:

    I believe it's SATA...
