I've got a 2.13ghz core 2 duo macbook- 5,2. It's pretty beat up and I'll never sell it so I have no reserves about cutting up the case. I'm comfortable taking apart the machine. I replaced the internal drive with an SSD and replaced the display as well. The optical drive was removed when these other modifications were done (it was broken) so there's a sata connection lying dormant in there. I'm in need of fast connection to an external drive that can connect to another person's PC for video editing. The USB and firewire 400 ports that the computer currently has aren't cutting it. I'd like to do things as cheaply as possible. What I'd like to do is create an external sata connection from the connection the optical drive used to use. I'll probably just cut a hole in the case for the connection. What adapters and cables do I need to make this work? Is it even possible?
