Hi all,
Does anyone have experience with replacing a bad DVD loader in a DVD player with an inexpensive DVD ROM for a PC? I noticed that the broken DVD player I have uses a standard IDE connector, and even has the jumpers for master/slave IDE, even the audio cables... it looks like this thing was build to be compatible with a PC IDE bus. As such, would I be able to buy a DVD rom and stick it in there?
thanks in advance,
Santiago

You are correct, some do use the IDE type & have seen many including the DVD recorders, however there is no guarantee whatsoever mainly because of the possible internal software incompatibility. But can always try one & see

In case someone does a search for this topic in the future, just wanted to post that putting in a computer DVD ROM on this player did work! In particular, I put in a memorex CD-RW/DVD-rom into the panasonic DVD player. I have no intention of using the CD-RW capability, obviously, but I just had this particular unit in a box doing nothing.
by the way, thanks for your reply, Ray.
