    nobody would waste their time doing something like that, sorry if i sound rude.

    Its just that there are so many other problems that need to be solved and frankly much more interesting things to do, rather than hack an ordinary mac to use a MBA external drive when it would serve no point to public.

    thing again.
    maybe his macbook pro does not have a superdrive and the MBA drive is cheaper than having one built in?

    I wish there was a rude say to say this.

    I'm sorry man, you'll have to get a new drive if you want to make that happen.

    I suggest looking for one on ebay, you might get one for 30 bucks.
