I have a broken laptop (to expensive to repair). I would like to transfer the dvd/cd drive to an enclosure for use with a netbook. Is this easy to do? Please Can anyone point me to some tutorials on the subject.

These drives are not designed to fit in an enclosure.

You can buy a small circuit board click here which will adapt the drive to an IDE port but then, to connect to a netbook, you also need a IDE to USB Adaptor and power supply
