    No, that is for a tray-loading drive. You might be better off just buying a full USB DVD drive, as some of the slot-loading cases are not cheap.

    Dang, thank you.
    This Youtuber ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Fg7Rfg2jTQ )
    states in his description that he got his enclosure for $6.75, so it got my hopes up, though his link no longer works. Any ideas to similarly priced compatibly products?

    I'm getting a cheap caddy off of ebay :(
    would the second one here be compatible with the superdrive of the MBP?

    I don't know enough about it to definitively say no, but I doubt it. The superdrive is a slot load drive, and that enclosure is for a drive that has a tray. You would need an enclosure that supports a slot-load drive
