Is there a way to replace the cd drive in my laptop, with a cd drive from my old PC? Answered

I need to replace the cd drive on my laptop, and I have a couple old PCs laying about. I'm not especially technically minded when it comes to the hardware aspect of a comp though. If I could just wire up a cd drive to be external, that would work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you will need to buy a desktop ide to usb hard drive converter. it should work for the disc drive.
