    I have a new Mac Pro coming tomorrow. My current PowerMac is dead, so I'm planning on doing the Migration Assistant by putting in my old Drive into the new Mac Pro.

    The question I have is: Is it worth putting in my old Superdrive into the 2nd slot? Even it is not the newer 16x speed?

    only for occasional access I would say, it will be slower in comparison to the newer drive.

    If you think you'll use a 2nd drive regularly you might be better to buy a new one - they're really cheap. Around £20 last time I looked (about $40).

    i paid 40AUD for a similar one, i personally would track down the identical drive as my pioneer doesn't clear the silver cover, needs a poke. If it is for occasional use i would put the old one in, then when a blu-ray player is available ditch the old for a blu-ray drive.

    option+eject for the 2nd drive. ;)
