USB HDD enclosure modded to connect DVD drive

Recommended Posts

This is pretty fun. A user at Hackadayneeded to connect his DVD optical drive to a computer but USB was his only option. So, he tore apart a USB HDD enclosure and rigged it up to the DVD drive. It's not exactly artwork, but it's functional.

That's both cool and resourceful. I actually just finished reading the instructions and it definitely seems to be a lot easier than what I thought. I might take up this project just for fun in my spare time and to those of you who need a USB DVD drive but aren't daring enough to take up this project, remember that you can buy a pre-built one instead just don't expect it to be as cheap...
