    Panasonic slot load

    I just got my Panosonic dvd/cd drive from Mp3car.com and it did'nt came with instruction or factory box. My question is what type of cable do I need to hook it up to my motherboard? (Its the Epia sp130000) I'm still waiting for my motherboard so I have no idea if it comes with the cable for the cd/dvd drive. But if not what type of cable do I need?

    You need an adapter that will convert an ATAPI (I think) to IDE. We have them, and it was listed as an accessory for that item. All those parts are OEM, and arrive to us pretty much the same way that we ship them to you. There aren't any instructions or drivers with that unit that are needed. Just hook it up and your pretty much good to go.

    It's an adapter for the latop-style connector to IDE. IDE and ATAPI are pretty much the same thing.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Do I need a cable for that or it just plugs right behind the optical drive?
