Thank you

I have successfully added a Super drive to my 2012 Mac mini.

Re hash of required mods

Moved Capacitor on center bottom of logic board
Used a Tack to smash in pin 4 of the 6 pin power side data connector (manufacturing diag.)
Cut the edges off an old mac pro slimline super drive.
Cut the plastic tray to avoid logic board.


Just a note in one post it shows a picture of removing pin4 from the 7 pin connector, this is wrong. It is the pin 4 of the 6 pin connector.

All is working after the pin mod.
