Skip the adapter and get a new SATA DVD-RW. I am a big fan of Samsung and Plextor SATA DVD-RWs. Never had a single problem with either brand over many years of use. Bottom line, in the long run, you'll be happier and won't have to worry about any possible compatibility issues with the adapter. Probably be cheaper to go this route as well. Good luck!
cool thanks a lot! I ran into the idea of a SATA DVD drive on my own, and seems like the way to go. I wasn't going to upgrade my DVD drive and just use one I had, but it is a pretty old one and could use some uptodatifying
