    according to your link, and assuming the picture is correct, that is deffinatly a ATAPI-usb adapter, so your options are open to any slimline(atapi connector) laptop drive you want...

    that one is really cool! i wish i had come across that before ending up with my atapi-ide-usb setup...and for only $9....

    I really like the idea of using that adapter instead of my current setup, and thnk taht there could be alot of other people that could use it also, so i made a thread in the store suggestions area(Jeils, you get the credit for finding it though..)

    cool cool maybe we could setup a group buy?

    my monitor is a XDX-P0701D
    NAME : In-dash 7" TFT AV Touch Screen Car PC VGA LCD Monitor

    I got it off ebay for $150 the guys real cool and is ok with me sending it back and refunding me, my next choice is the VMI70 because its motorized, has a clock(which I hope still works when the unit is closed). and it tilts side to side

    EDIT: well I just bought my IDE to USB adapter, when it gets here I'll let you know how well it works.

    I love this Head unit idea but my major hurdle is making a face plate that looks stock

    here is the face of the Head unit I gutted


    I plan on using the original hole for the disc, I'd Like to use the little window but I don't know what for, or how to hook a display up behind it

    Im going to cut the rest out leaving the border so it will still clip onto the rest. I figure I'd fiberglass the face plate of the media reader and some button off an old computer case into it so I have the power reset buttons any tips would be great

    should I post this in the fabrication area?`

    i would personally mold copy the plate and then do the modifications on fresh peace of plastic =)

    the display you bough was cheap one, 40% are broken only V2 firmware seams to be stable, old oncce have issues with VGA procesing chip
