Hi,

I’m planning to buy a SOSW-852S but here in Germany there are none in stock and they are around 160 US$.

I found the external version of the drive SOSW-852SX for just around 130 US$ and in stock at many shops…

Is it possible to make fit it into my notebook? I need it configured as MASTER because there are problems with CSL and nCSL while booting.

I also have a tool for my old SDW-431S to change between Master, Slave and CSL/nCSL named “e2ms.exe”…

Thanks for your help
Carsten

I think so. But I’m not 100% sure. The bezel is going to look really funky, though.
