    Slimline DVD + CD-R / RW Question

    What do you guys think about modding my Installation kit (attached) so that a slimline CD drive would fit in there?



    Thats the installation kit the slimline unit would go under the head unit... do you think it would fit?

    I would probably have to get an adaptor to make the drive IDE from slimline format (im assuming it uses laptop) then I would have to get a USB enclosure and modify that so that it would fit in - then I would have to run the USB wire to where my computer will be located. I think that would be nice as then I would be able to use my CD like a regular one without using the computer to play CD's

    You think it would work?

    Hmm, you think a laptop drive would be any different considering they take quite alot of pounding before they skip? heh or I could just buy the 10 disk changer for my head unit either way
