it's just a pioneer slot-load dvd drive for notebooks. they told me that it only plugs into a notebook and they don't make a cable for it.
the reason i question this is because i've seen other people on here with this drive in use.
i guess i'll check pioneer.
it's a dvr-k05 that's the model of the slot load laptop dvd-r drive. I bought the dvr-k06, newer, had dvd-ram (that US doen'st really use), and faster write speeds but it was several dollars more then older model, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827129003
-If you are mounting the drive VERY NEAR to the MoBo(less then 2 feet), then it's cheaper to go with #1, if you are mounting farther away (more then 2 feet), then use #2
I went with #1 because I mounted my MoBo in back of the drive. If you go with #2, you need to also power the IDE to USB adapter. Be careful with the IDE to USB adapter, some use 5V some use 9V, and also the polarity, they have barrel plugs that may have the (+) on the outside.
Slim IDE adapter was what I was looking for. I went to 3 computer places and they all just laughed at me and said it couldn't be done. Someone told me to look for places that sell Home Theater parts....and once I looked for that I found the adapter. Thanks for the help.
p.s. I bought it at http://www.directron.com/cddvdadapter.html
p.p.s. why doesn't MP3Car sell these?
