just found this thread! exactly what ive been looking for. Thanks guys! just purchased the above product on ebay (laptop cd rom to usb)
now all i need is to find a dvd rom i like and a monitor and my setup will be complete. will probably go with the above monitor used!
good work on previous installs guys!
this looks great, i am thinking of doing this but also torn because i know about that new xenarc coming with the slot load and usb ports and power buttons etc (plus am/fm and internal amp) but if i go this rought i will save about 4-500 bucks.
btw is that THE Super_dave? of V710 firmware Glory?
Anyone know of any UK suppliers for the above interface ?? It's only $9 but another $24 shipping to the UK. It would be cheaper to get the complete enclosure from LinITX for me. Seems to use the same interface board but includes leads and enclosure.
^^ About $26 delivered.
Might have to get a slim slot loading DL DVD burner for it. Scan have one for $89 shipped and the regular slot CDRW drives are $93 shipped at LinITX.

What do you guys do with the LCD ribbon cable, how do you mount it when the dvd drive already in? How does the ribbon cable folds up? Are there ay issues?
I have a IDT but cannot add sloat load dvd because i pushed all back conections to the midle of the indash.
That way it doesnt stands out of the dash so much.
