Serial ATA DVD rom

#1

I am looking into purchasing a serial ATA DVD rom for my computer and am having problems locating a place to purchase one online. Does anyone know of a good one at a good price? Or possibly a place to start looking?

TIA,
Lawrence J

I don’t think that any are available yet. You could probably use an adapter though…

Probably being the key word there ;). No one makes them because SATA does not support it [yet].

parallel ATA is also already much faster than dvd-rom drives need, so there would be no advantage to having a serial ATA dvd-rom drive.

Tell that to all those that think having a drive that supports more than udma 2 makes an actual difference… :rolleyes:
