  • Where to find the CORRECT laptop CDR/DVD to Desktop IDE Adapters

    I know that this dog has been beaten enuff but I'm feeling unusually cruel today....

    I've been looking for a Adapter to use my laptop DVD-ROM in my car but the ones Ive brought so far (Idot, Baber) stick out the wrong way, and space is at a premium at the moment.

    Only ONE guy on this thread had the ones I was looking for, but he was sold out. Does anyone out there know of another source for these adapters, or at least a way to hack out a homemade
    unit

      I think thats what he was asking about (apple dvdrom slot loading drives), and I thought that someone else has potentially found a source for them.

        vicumar is the guy who was selling them... kinda pricey too.

        not to sound like a whiner, but he is very secretive about the source of the parts. kinda like he doesnt want anyone to be able to undersell him.

        anyway, there is an apple part number for the adapter you are looking for. i'll try to look for it, i know it has been posted.

        *edit*

        here is the page that shows the part number...
        http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...+drive+adapter
        it is on the last post. by the way, i tried getting one from the apple store, as well as an apple repair shop, and both came up no-go. you cant order parts from the store and the shop had no idea what the part was... best of luck

          Just an update.... I have the slot load DVD for Imac
          (SR-8185-C) with that stoopid JAE adapter, and the cheesey
          adapters I have dont fit the right way and not flush against the drive (the 40-pin connector juts out slightly in the back)

          From what I've been hearing in this group, that the adapter
          might actually be a 3rd party product that was created to allow use of Slimline/laptop type CD/DVD drives in some Apple computers (g3, Imac) so searching thru Mac part suppliers may be key to all our problems...

          If we can get a picture of the adpater that clearly displays the part or product # we'll have an easier time finding someone who has it...

          Not knocking anyone, but right now I'll take the adapter from wherever I can get it, IF it can get to me in a decent amount of time

            Here's the solution:

            Adapter:
            Apple computer part N 820-1050-A

            You found it here:
            http://www.allmac.com
            All mac part number BRD-4525 @ 29.25$

            search for "interconnect" in the search box

                  those adapters in the pics convert the drive to a 50 pin ide. how do you connect that to a standard 44 pin and power?

                    I've already post the JAE50 pinout + IDE 40 pinout in a previous thread

                    I tested with a multimeter to get the JAE50->IDE50
                    I will post this on monday(It's on my office I'm now at home...)

                    But it's easy just connect IDE50 pin 50-> IDE pin 40
                    you can leave the first 1-10 pin free on the IDC 50

                    For the +5V and GND just solder on the pcb adaptor your wire (There is some big SMD capacitor)


                    I'll post some pic & additional info on monday

                    (I've also to test this on monday)

                    I'll keep you in touch...

                    On the first 10 pin of the IDC 50 there is +5V, AudioR, AudioL AudioGND, GND

                    *Edit
                    Ok tested! It work!!

                        What about getting the audio output to my soundcard. Anyone know what the pins are for that?
