SD-R2102 drive through USB?


I have a Toshiba SD-R2102 drive (it’s a CD-RW drive) from an old Compaq Presario laptop and would like to use it on another Compaq laptop that does not accept the same kind of drives. (The drive was originally from a Presario 1700 and I want to use it on a Presario 700). I was thinking maybe via USB with an adapter of some sort…

The SD-R2102 is a notebook slim line CD with a 50-pin connector.

My question is, does that kind of adapter exist? 50-pin connector to USB or something like that?

Or is there some other way to connect the drive that I haven’t thought of?

Thank you very much for your help, any input or ideas will be greatly appreciated…
