    i need a cd rom to fit a ibm net vista model 6568

    a mate asked fit to fit a cd rom to his machine oh a no brainer i though, ah that was my first mistake

    when i got round there with a cd writer and unclipped the case the drive bay is tiny and even with some demeling the power supply is in the way to take a proper 5 1/4 driver

    i done a bit of googling but cant find a drive to fit anyone got any ideas maybe a laptop drive

    thanks

    If the drive is too long you can get shorter optical drives which are shorter by like an inch? I can find you some if you want?
