    laptop dvd drive

    I bought a dvd drive for a laptop to put in my dash. Its just the right size to have a really nice in-dash drive, and I think it will look really clean. The only problem is adapting it to work with a standard IDE and ATX. Its a compaq drive, but is supposedely some kind of popular standard. does anyone know of something I could buy/make to get it to work?

    I don't have the link handy, but if you search on cdrom ide adapter you should be able to turn it up. Baber? sells one i think. And the "compaq" cdrom might have an unusual compaq specific adapter screwed over the standard laptop cdrom ide adapter.
