    i think the apple ones are the only drives that are slot load and a slimline case.

    i have an apple drive (probably the same that you are looking at) and from what im told, it is compatable with non apple PCs. i havent confirmed this yet with any of my own testing, but they should work... from what everyone else says around here...

    post a link the the ebay auction so we can see what you are looking at. most likely all you will need is a 50 pin JAE to 40 IDE adapter.

    I had one of these drives. I forget the exact model number but it worked great with the EPIA board. It also included a 40pin to 50pin adapter. The one I had didn't stick out the side, but others have reported that theirs do.

    Where did you get your adapter for the DVD? I am looking for one that fits the right way.

    Cheap Slim Slot DVD + Adapter

    It has the link to yourdrive.com in there and the link/part # for the adapter. I think PTCruiser posted them there.

    I ordered mine last week, but i got this email back from them:

    Dear xxx,

    I am sorry to inform you that this item is no longer available.

    Regards,

    I would order from the other place but i don't think that they have them with the faceplate, maybe?

    Anyways... this guy has (or had) some bezels. I'd email him. He is selling the yourdrive.com stuff seperatley (bezel and drive) for a substantial markup.

    I ordered a bezel just in case the yourdrive thing doesn't pan out. In that case I'll just order the drive from other world computing.
