    convert tray load to slot load...

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    I have a very nice, high quality tray load drive that I'd like to install in the car, but I need it to be a slot load drive instead. This is a full size drive, not a slim line drive.

    Anyone have any ideas here?

    I think that slot load and tray load drives are just too different.. think about it.. you would need some way to push the disc down on to the tray load spindle, and a way to move it outta the way so it doesnt scratch the cd when it's inserted..

    pretty complex.. does it absolutely HAVE to be slot load?

    Yes, it needs to be slot load. Tray load isn't an option.

    I'm just wondering if it would be possible to change out the mechanics between the two.
