Using old Sony DVD writer on Asus 1018P netbook.
Would it be possible to use an old but fully functional Sony DVD writer that was on my previous desktop PC on an Asus 1018p netbook using the USB socket on the netbook? I heard there is a cradle available but would appreciate more specific advice. Thanks.
You can buy external enclosures for 5-1/4" devices and put the drive in one. The enclosure will normally provide a usb interface.
The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them.
