Hi

I found a slimline 2.5 inch ide hard disk enclosure here:

MSI StarTray 2.5" IDE Slim Enclosure
http://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!

Thanks :slight_smile:

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…
