    Will This DVD Drive Work On A IDE Chain?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827129003



    This is a great slot-loading DVD-RW, CD-RW drive.... Perfect for what I (or you guys) will be using it for.... However, its not a standard IDE port in the back... Its some kind of another connecter that I guess is a standard laptop style connector, but I could be wrong.

    I wanted to know if there is some kind of special cable or conversion module that will allow me to connect this drive in the above link to a real IDE cable that will attact to my motherboard, thus giving me a great slot loading DVD drive

    Thanks In Advance!

    Yes. A search would have revealed the following.
