    Slim Slot CD-Rom Connection?

    Quick one:

    just what exactly is this connection

    http://ko1.koonline.ca/ebay/UJ-815-B/104_0428.JPG

    and where can i either buy something to convert it to IDE or USB2.
    Thanks


    Its the connection on the back of my slim loading cd-rom,
    it says it's ide, but it's definatle a lot smaller than any IDE i've seen
    mobo $130 ; 150wOpus-$200 ; 256mb pc2700 -$10 ; 120gb HDD 7200-$70 ; Lilliput TS 7"-$265 ; USB LAN-Free AR ; Rikaline 6010 GPS-$34 ; ShuttleXpress-$37
    Total = $746....Carputer = Priceless

    I solved it (just a little newb aftershock)

    anyways, I need a notebook IDE to desktop IDE converter..
    ala http://www.mini-itx.com/reviews/2677R/page3.asp

    But which one do i need?

    I'm trying to go from the slimline Ide to a desktop IDE to a 44pin IDE to usb2 adapter to my computer. I have the IDE(44) to usb, I just need to get my slim CD Rom converted to IDE.

    Here are some i've found:

    Mine needs to be updated.

    actually it turns out you need a laptop to desktop adapter too...

    the entire conversion is as follows:

    slim ide---> 44pin Ide (laptop) ---> 40 pin Ide (desktop)---> Usb2

    Am i going to have any problems with it changing that many times?

    So its slim ide to desktop ide to usb.

    How does the audio get to the computer, or does that also go through the ide to usb?

    Will i need anything else?

    The pic shows that one needs a power supply?

    dash and theres hardly any room as it is.

    Yep... DC Output: 5V. I believe one of the wires on a Molex connector is 5 volts.

    But i thought with most USB connections the item gets its power threw the usb from the computer.

    Like my usb hub, it comes with a power source but I dont use it, the usb powers it.
