slim slot dvd rom with wrong adapter, questions
Doing google searching I came upon this forum.
I bought a slim slot loading dvd drive off of ebay, and an adapter to make it IDE + power to convert it for desktop use.
Well ... the adapter fits on upside down... the drive powers up, but the computer's BIOS doesn't see it (using the adapter upside down) ... though it doesn't fit on there very well, i might have to clip some of the pins on the back.
Anyway, my question is this. Can I use this adapter, just upside down? Or is the other adapter REQUIRED for operation?
Could someone list some sources for the correct adapter? Browsing the forums, I see links to allmac, and ilovemacs, and other sites, which are all long gone :(
thanks for any info!
