I'm attempting to mount my dvd drive into an HD DVD case. Extending the power cable and adding a longer SATA cable isn't the problem.
The problem is the eject button, the HD DVD case has a small circuit board and 4 wire connector to open and close the HD DVD drive while the eject button on the xbox console is mounted on the mother board.
Is it possible to use the eject button on the HD DVD case to open and close the new drive or will it only be possible to use one of the controllers?
Is there a way to splice into the power cable with any of the wires from the eject connector on the HD DVD to make it work? I have read that one of the wires on the power cable carries the eject function to the drive, can this be converted to work with the HD DVD case eject button?
There is also a 12 wire connector on the circuit board that carries the power to the HD DVD drive similar to the 10 wire connector that the xbox uses. I assume this connector has the power and eject function, could it be used to power the drive and eject the disk tray?
Thanks in advance.
