This looks a rather interesting idea
Hmmm I have a spare internal DVD writer knocking about as well as a couple of old IDE HDDs, could be a pretty flexible solution
You can get external drive bays for around $10-20 here in the States – would think you guys could do the same.
Thats a nice find I would prefer that to swapping drives out all the time.
Nice idea, I do actually have a couple of old drives lying around. For Â£20 I’d be tempted to get pay more for a external drive or stick to shared drive. But if maplin made it a little cheaper I’d prob jump on it.
If you already have a laptop slim DVD drive, as many do, try this cheap enclosure and for $20 US you have your slim external DVD drive
I have had one of those types of adapter for a while and they work great just wonder if NC10 has enough power to drive a 3.5″ device though ? I have only ever used mine on a desktop to test HDD’s
Edit: Thinking about it mine comes with a PSU so I dont know why I wrote the above ! lol ! I need a Holiday !
Amazon.co.uk has some good deals:
This one is a lot cheaper and comes with a power brick.
This one also supports SATA
i use the top link one with a old ide dvd rom drive, works a treat for installing all me progs.
had the device for a while now, use it mainly for HardDrives.
Hi btw 🙂
