    HI

    I tried to change the optical drive. But the problem is the useless connection plug. Named "slim IDE", a simple pATA connection.
    So the problem is, i can´t find the correct part on the Mainbord is the same plugpart then on the slim line optical drives (i think its female)

    so know anybody how can i get the correct connector ?

    thx Markus
    :confused:

    im confused as to what youre trying to do. you can use one of those caddys to attach a 2.5 hdd in place of the dvd. do you want to do something different?
