Possible to put an X360 HD-DVD drive into a PC 5.25 bay? Tags: HD DVD Drives Components Last response: September 14, 2007 10:58 PM in Components Share Lost_C1tY September 13, 2007 2:59:33 PM I tried googling this but couldn't find any info. Is the drive inside microsoft's xbox360 HD-DVD unit a standard HD-DVD drive? Would it be possible to put it into a 5.25 bay and connect it via SATA or IDE? or does it use proprietary connectors?

Heyyou27 September 13, 2007 3:43:21 PM The Xbox360 HD-DVD unit has it's own housing, power supply, and connects through a USB port. The actual drive uses a mini ATAPI connector found in laptops, and could be converted to IDE, but I don't know how you'd get power to it.
