if this can be done please let me know how.
What model MBP are you talking about?
Model Identifier: MacBookPro9,2
If you have a MacBook model with an internal optical drive, you can replace the optical drive with a bracket like this that holds a second internal drive. If you search the forums for "data doubler" you will find tons of posts from others that have done this.
Data doubler as mentioned above. Gotta love cMBP
Yes, you can replace the optical drive with a HDD or SSD. You can also search the forum for threads on "optibay". You'll find dozens of threads, including instructions on how to do it.
thanks cause I can't find any internal hard drive that is 2.5 inch and is 2tb
1.5TB is currently the largest, I believe
OH what is this all about?
Dual Bay Docking Station for Most Internal SATA Hard Drives
Those are external devices that connect by USB or FireWire.
which one is a better pick the owc or the mce? I own a external blu ray player that reads dvd's will I still be able to use idvd?
Why isn't we can't put in a 3.5 inch hard drive are their converters for this? I did google it nothing.
The 3.5in is thicker than a 2.5in and therefore would not fit in your MB
bummer so out of the two companies owc and mce what is a better brand?
To be honest it is personal preference, go with your gut feeling. They will both perform just as well and are fairly easy to install.
When I did this I simply picked up a cheap enclosure of Amazon for 20$ and a HD of the shelf.
