    I've had bad experiences with Mat****a products in the past, not saying that this is a bad product, only that you be warned and make sure that it has some kind of warranty.

    If memory serves me correct the slim slot load dvd apple drives we were talking about about a month ago were also Mat****a (I dont have time to go back in look). They may even be the same drives, so be carefull about the connector.

    These are definitley not the same drives. I have one sitting in front of me. This model is altogether different. Look @ the bottom where it says ratings. Here is one post:

    Please note that there are no drivers availible for WindowsNT 4.0 Windows, 2000 Windows or XP see http://www.mke.panasonic.co.jp/en/down/index.html

    I'm sure whomever got the macsales dvdrom and allmac adpater can attest to the fact that the other drives DO work with these OS'es (WinXP I can vouch for).

    I decided, with all the uncertainty of which drive, and which adaptor, and the addition of international shipping, and US companies that won't ship to the UK, that I would spend a little more upfront.

    I found This Argosy USB2 8x in my local PC World (like Frys and CompUSA, but very few bargains to be had unless you look), in their reduced to clear corner (it was perfect as I had just picked up a KT3Ultra ARU) for 99.

    Works perfectly, and as I'm planning on mounting the DVD under the edge of the rear seat, and the PC in the trunk, it fits together pretty well. Equally, I could extend the cable and dash mount the drive too.

    Might be worth looking at Generation 1 slower USB2 slim drives once the newer faster ones start to appear.

    BTW, this drive can also do PCMCIA/Firewire/Cardbus too, if you don't have USB2, but you would need to locate the cables seperatley.
