Laptop Carputer - Slot Load DVD Options
new to the Carputer scene, I've been putting together a laptop from spare parts I've been gathering around town and I'm almost done. The final step in my project is to add a Slot Load DVD player.
The laptop I am using has a JAE50 connector for the drive. I have not purchased a Slot Load DVD player yet, because I am not sure whether I should get a Slot Load for laptops, or one with an IDE connector and then get the adaptor.
I would prefer to use a Slot Load for laptops (JAE50) connector, but I have not found any cables that I could use to extend this drive about 7' to my dash.
Has anyone else run into this situation? Any suggestions?
