Removing DVD drive-other things affected?
Hi, I know it's weird but i want to take my dvd drive out of my white macbook (early 2009) and i want to know if other computer functions will be affected. I heard something about bluetooth being connected to the drive or something?

Would be fine, use this guide for an easy step by step guide

MacBook Unibody Model A1342 Optical Drive Replacement - iFixit

Thanks, follow-up question. i saw that the fixit article you gave was for a unibody. i don't think that's what i've got. my trackpad and clicker are separate and i don't know much about comps but i think i remember someone saying that the unibody's trackpad and clicker were all one piece. is that right?

oh, and also if i don't replace the drive, everything'll still be ok as far as other functions?

I have a unibody MBP and I just removed the optical drive and nothing else on the computer has been affected.

I know you have the white model but you would still only be removing the SATA connection on the motherboard when you remove the DVD drive so I don't think anything will be affected either.
