    Could mac slot loading DVD/CDRW work with PC

    Does anyone know if a laptop drive from a G4 mac could work with a laptop IDE-USB connector?
    Thanks,
    t.

    find out if it has a standard JAE-50 connector ont eh back. If it does, then you only need a slip-to-IDE adapter or a USB enclosure.
    Macs use standard IDE just like a PC.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    if it's anything like my slim slot loading DVD drive, the JAE-50 connector is actually upside down... I made a post earlier about my situation too about not being able to find a correct one...

    Good luck!
