I found a slimline 2.5 inch ide hard disk enclosure here:
MSI StarTray 2.5" IDE Slim Enclosurehttp://www.silicon-edinburgh.co.uk/product.asp?cat=Drives&subcat=Enclosures&prodID=5986
Can this be modified to accept a laptop DVD drive instead as no shop I contact seems to have a laptop DVD enclosure in stock!
No the will not fit. You need a 5.25 slimline enclousure.
You can check out the Mapower or MacPower products:
I think there may be other manufacturers…
OK np, thanks a lot for your reply and info.
