    you can't use a long ide cable. it won't work. i have tried many combinations to get my dvd drive up front. i used a usb 2.0 external case and took the guts out. this will work great.

    also, i don't see any s video outputs on your video card. how are you planning to run those headrest monitors?

    do you have pictures of your USB 2.0 case you used instead of IDE ?

    Bro, go easy on the bold type.

    Hurts my eyes.

    Just cruise ebay, they've got reams of the external usb cases ther for a couple bucks. That's where I got mine, slipped in a slot load dvd drive, molded it into the dash and it works great.

    cheers

    Not saying you will, but it's a high probability................
    I agree with GreatWhite, I would use a external USB enclouser with its own power supply.

    for this kind of install I suggest using this isolation method for wires - cheap, makes things more organized and looks very professional

    Are these screens VGA? The font is going to look terrible and not even be readable. I learned the hard way, I bought two 9 inch screens and hooked them up, the font was so bad, I replaced them with two 7 inch Lilliputs.... check out my worklog.

    The resolution will be ok, until you use them to view the PC..... To test your setup.... simply take a power block from a PC. Follow the pictures below.
