    laptop dvd drive (quick question)

    im looking to get a drive, even a tray load would be fine, can i just get any one from ebay, get a desktop to laptop converter, and have it work? thanks

    and the mpo3car adapter - http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...products_id=83


    both of thses should be compatable then, right? it looks like the adapter will stick out to the side of the drive. this would actually be a good thing for me if it does, can anyone confirm?

    That should work, and the adapter should fit directly behind the drive.
