    slim slot adapter (Updating)

    I've been reading posts here for some time now, I just haven't ever posted. I've got my system built (minus DVD drive). I'm ordering the slim slot DVD and have been reading the posts for the adapter, but most of the info is a year+ old and most of the links don't work anymore. Where can I currently get the correct adapter that doesn't stick out for the mac slim slot 6x DVD drive? Is there a JAE cable? Then I could use the adapter that sticks out and mount it in my custom plexi case. I know use the search button, blah,blah, blah, the dates are over a year old.

    i bought mine from allmac.com part number:BRD-4525 and it doesnt stick out the 2 things you will have to do are:

    1- make IDE cable with 50 pins on one end and 40 pin in the other

    2- solder the power wires to the board


    hope this helps

    blah blah blah, it only seems like 3 months ago...okay, 3months and 15 days...

    You need more info than this?

    Yeah, like I said, I've read that. Click some of the links, most don't work. The one for the mac parts does, but it looks like it was created by a two year old in 1984. I was wondering if anyone has ordered from them lately before sending my money to a company with an outdated website.

    If you noted the dates of the last 6 or so messages, they were all from about 3 months ago...that is when I bought and installed mine...

    So if yours matches mine, and you buy the one that I bought, your problem is solved.

    Now the apple part isn't the cheapest way to go, but it does fit perfectly.

    I've got tons of pictures. I haven't installed the puter yet. I'm just finishing the custom plexi case and I still have to order the touch screen. I've got the palm version autotap with a tungsten T, but when I get this carputer in I'm switching to the windows version so I'm pretty pumped about getting this thing in. So far current mods are: CAI, Magnaflow catbacks, 2.8 upper (15lbs boost), diablo chip, sub-frame connectors, pro 5.0 shifter, nittos 315's. My last dyno was 462rwhp 484rwtq. I started this carputer as a project so I don't go out and buy a KB twin screw blower and bump it up to 550rwhp at 15lbs , but I think that will come later.
