    So how well are those laptop cdrom to usb adapters working for everyone? I am looking for feedback before making my final decision on how I am installing my DVD drive. I have the 700IDT, but am debating whether I can do something better.

    And from the looks of it, it should not have any issue interfering with the spring mechanism, just by looking at it.

    Should be a nice solution, considering sources that sell these just hiked up the price from around 45-50 to 70+ for the same item not too long ago.

    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?

    Nice write-up

    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?

    No, no issues. The ribbon cable does not interfere.

    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.
