Does anyone know if the Superdrive can be swapped for a DL 8x and what model will work?

I have a Macbook Pro

Doesn't it require an ultra slim or something instead of the slimline? I would like to know if anyone has successfully done this on the macbook pro 15.

Indeed.. well if any place will carry them, it'll be them.

No idea what this places' reputation is, but they seem to indicate it's possible and available: http://www.dttservice.com/macbookpro.html#macbooksuperdrive

I suggest Googling for more, that's how I found the above.

EDIT: I should also say that because drivers are an issue (there generally aren't any readily available for OS X), you cannot (usually) simply purchase a replacement drive off say newegg and slap it in your Mac. You also might want to look at http://www.patchburn.de for indications of what 3rd party OEM drives might be swappable.
