Can anyone help me - I am clueless when it comes to this and I have tried to figure this out by reading online but only become more confused.

I just got a Samsung SH-S223F unlike the B it says above from someone and cannot return it. I have a Sony VGN-NR21J and I was wondering if I can connect this DVD writer to my laptop and how do I do this? Will this work ok?

Thanks for any help given. :bow:

Thats an HH drive?

Then you need an enclosue, put the drive in, connect it to the lappy.

Hi,[QUOTE=Terri75;2538834]Right now to sound really thick - whats a enclosure[/quote]a box where your drive fits in plus a power supply brick plus some electronics.

and how do I get one,
Simply buy one. :bigsmile: There are local shops and there are online shops. A plain matter of taste.

is there a special one I need for my writer?
You need an enclosure that has an internal Sata interface. External should be USB 2.0 HiSpeed.

If you are in doubt, ask a local computer shop for assistance. Also have a look at the price for such an enclosure. Sometimes they are not much cheaper than a “ready-to-run” external drive (and don’t go for an external slim drive without power supply!).

Thanks for that, one last question (hopefully) what size would I need as I see there is ones that are 2.5" and 3.5" I have looked on the box and cannot seem to find any clue as to which one I would need?

Many thanks again :bow:

Internal interface must be Sata.
