View Full Version : connecting ext. HD and DVD with SATA to USB cable

Aug 7, 2012, 12:40 PM
Hi, I have an internal harddrive and DVD player/burner from a PC desktop computer. I'd like to use the harddrive for backup storage and the DVD player to play movies occasionally.

I have limited computer tinkering experience, but I read that a SATA to USB cable will allow my MBA to communicate with the harddrive and DVD player. I'm wondering if it will be as simple as downloading a driver and then connecting the hardware to use it? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

You probably wont even have to download a driver.
