I found myself in possession of a broken laptop that still had a perfect DVD-RW-DL drive, so I thought, "why not put it to good use?"
For this instructable you need:
-a functioning Laptop optical drive
-this USB adapter
-cardboard (18"x12" or so)
-measuring, cutting and marking tools
Step 1: Attach the USB adapter
It came with the necessary screws and spacers to attach it. be sure and remove (and save) any screws and brackets originally attached to the drive.
