    Slot load dvd drive

    So this will be my first mac as well as my first Carputer! I am trying to find a slot load dvd drive to mount in my dash. The SuperDrive for MacBook Air seems to be the perfect sollution xcept it only works with the mac air.

    Any one have an idea how to get it to work or can I just use any other drive by running windows on my mac?

    This as well as figuring the best way to get a signal I can adjust (Front, Back and Subs as well as right to left) Right now I am using my stock head unit running to a jl audio clean sweep unit that is supposed to do just that so I may just use it. It also has a volume control.

    Why not just get a generic USB mounted slot load drive? Run the cables as appropriate - may not have to move the CPU closer to the drive.
