Take a look at this thread I started...
Slim DVD & IDE to USB - DVD QLTY
I am going to put my carputer in the trunk and have a DVD drive up front. So bascailly I have three options:
1. Get a external USB DVD drive
2. Get a slimline laptop DVD drive with a slimline drive enclousure with USB
3. Get a desktop size DVD drive and a IDE to USB convertor
Size won't be a big factor since I am going to build the DVD drive into the custom center console and the power is coming from a 150watt OPUS.
Which option will be a better choice ?
Also, will a slotload drive be better ?
Much help needed !!
