I have an external DVD drive which came with my old Latitude X1, would be useful for using with other computers via USB:
But the connector is a weird proprietary Dell D/Bay plug:
1. Does anyone know how to convert this plug into something usable on a different computer without a D/Bay? Some adapter? I've Googled to no avail.
2. Does someone know if the drive that's inside the plastic casing is a standard drive that'll be compatible with one of the £5 caddy enclosures (images; USB powered) that are sold on eBay?
Here is what the drive inside the plastic case looks like from the back:
Thank you in advance!
Anyone? Thank you.
I would prefer if I could convert the weird Dell D/Bay cable into something like 2 USB ends?
Alternatively, I found this: www.ebay.co.uk/.../250737452563
I hate to say it, but this is why I got a Mac... I usually get support with their products, unlike Dell stuff.
