    Laptop dvd drive in ATX motherboard adapter

    I recently bought (from ebay) a CD-RW/DVD+RW drive, taken out of a Dell Latitude D420 laptop. Here's the ebay page. I have an ATX carpc mobo, so I believe I need an IDE adapter. Would this product do the job?

    according to the pics on this page: http://www.impactcomputers.com/kh449.html
    it should work.


    but, if you really need the adapter, why not order it from the mp3car store and help support the forums? even if it is a couple bucks more..

    yep that product would be fine to use, you can also get SATA versions if your motherboard supports sata
