Need cables for Internal DVD Rom to use externally

  buel 12:37 29 Dec 09

Hello, my friend has a Advent 4489 netbook, it doesn't have a dvd/cd drive but i have found an internal DVD player that i bought some time ago. Please can anyone advise me of where to get the relevant leads to use this on his Advent? I have Googled it and it says the interface is ATAPI if this helps? Im guessing i'll need a power source for it too!

Google for a 'caddy' as they are known. I think Maplins do them.

Google external CD/DVD enclosure may also get you what you want
