    You need the laptop -> IDE adapter , then an IDE -> USB adapter.
    Another option is to get a USB enclosure for a slim laptop such as this .
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    you can also buy USB to IDE adapters that have both normal AND slim connectors on them (on opposite sides) which would probably be the simplest solution.

    check ebay.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    The slim dvd drive would not plug into that. So you would still need a slim optical to 40 pin adapter.
    Iwill ZPCgx 2.4ghz cel, 256mb pc2700, external combo drive, 80gb 2.5 laptop drive, xp pro, usb gps, 7 in Lilliput TS , carnetix CNX1900. All mounted ghetto- still experimenting and tweaking.
