Why Are Slim Optical Drive Form Factors And Slim Ide Not Standardized ?

I bought a sony crx880a assuming most optical drives have the same dimensions and one type of slim ide connection. The crx880a does not fit in my norco rpc4020 due to the cases' slim slots four perpendicular protrusions preventing install and placement. Also, i bought the pictured ide atapi dvd cdrom slim laptop adapter from ebay and it does not fit into the crx880a. What drive and/or adapter will install in the case and convert into an ide cable a motherboard will accept?

Ps3 Slim Won't Recognize Wd Usb 3.0 External Hard Drive

I've been trying for the last 3 days to connect my western digital mybook usb 3. 0 1tb external drive to my ps3 slim to no avail. I've went through *** and back so i wonder if it is even possible? Is the ps3 capable of backward compatibility with this drive?

I know many people have connected a 2. 0 usb external to a ps3 but i've googled and asked tech friends, game owners, sony ps3, wd, seagate, buffalo, adata. You name it. Yes of course i formatted the whole drive(partition)935gb into fat32 using various software programs; swissknife, acronis, partition wizard. They all show after completion that the drive was formatted to fat32. I even tried making folders; video, pictures, music and still no go. Is there something i'm missing? Is it a chipset issue or a host controller defecit on ps3's end? The funny thing is it will read my fat32 supertalent usb 3. 0 16gb flash drive so i dont know if the flash turns into a 2. 0 usb read that ps3 recognizes but it can't do that with the build of an external drive, maybe bc it's just a wd black or blue cavier sata with a controller laned into 3. 0 usb ports inserted into a tower. If anyone has had success with any of the usb 3. 0 external drives please let me know the amazing fix. I even thought there may be a difference with the usb 2. 0 and 3. 0 cables and iwould have to switch to a 2. 0 to connect to ps3. I'm not leaving any stone unturned. I contacted sony ps3 and they escalated it for the next meeting, so they say. Wd has no clue and will look into it. Seagate tech support told me right away it isn't supported but didn't say why bc i had to convey questions to the girl on the phone. Buffalo didn't know, so i contacted various retailers in canada that sell the drives to see if there was any feedback from customers or tech savvy employees. No one seems to know. Yet this could be a simple fix or it might be impossible with ps3's current setup and may be fixed if/when ps4 is released. I doubt a patch or firmware can fix this but you never know. It would be interesting to see if the ps3 will recognize a ssd in a usb 3. 0 enclosure. I have a ocz agility 2 ssd new and may try this b4 i install it with my original intention as internal for windows 7 64 bit os and media. I also bought an asus u3s6 card that comes with 2 usb 3. 0 ports. I have many people working on this even the main manager at canada computers as he is a ps3 fan and is very interested himself which is good because the more brains that inquire and trouble shoot the better the chance of a solution either soon or in the future. So once again, thanks for anyone that has had success with these drives and i'll be sure to post any information i receive.

Two Way Switchers For Dvi And For Usb / Ps2 Keyboard, Mouse

I'm looking to control which computer can send data to one of my monitors. I use dvi cables, and would like something nice but not too costly! Also, i would love it if i could do the same thing to my keyboard and mouse. It's a logitech set with wireless and i believe a wired option - any ideas short of popping the logitech wireless donggy back and forth (which isn't horrible).

Trackball Explorer Jumpy After Using Usb To Ps2 Converter

I have this 1-yr old microsoft trackball explorer 1. 0. It was doing great, until recently i needed a mouse for my other computer. I used the usb-to-ps2 converter on this trackball, and i think it messed it up inside. The mouse cursor is now jumping around and becomes "unplayable". It says it's ps2/usb compatible on the bottom of the mouse. I use the latest mouse driver from microsoft and cleaned the trackball. I wonder is there a "fix" available?

Get Internet On Ps2 - Hook Ps2 Up To Laptop

My hub is in the basement, so i was wondering if there's a way to change the settings on the laptop to produce a signal to go out one of the network ports on the laptop to the ps2?

I have windows xp. I would do a search on this topic, however, i have no idea what you would call my situation.

Connect Ps3 Slim To Pc Monitor

How to connect a ps3 slim to a pc monitor with sound? How do i do this? I want to do this because i want to avoid using my old 20in sdtv and since i don't have the money for a hdtv for my basement, i figure i could just use a computer monitor i already own. It has vga and dvi with hdcp, however- what i can't figure out is how to get the sound from the ps3's hdmi cable to a pair of pc speakers. What do i have to buy to get my ps3 to display on a pc monitor, in hd quality, and get the sound to come through the pc speakers (unless there is a better way). (They are regular stereo speakers with a 3. 5mm input, i know that's poor quality but sound isn't what i'm concerned with).

Wired Slim Keyboard With Standard Layout

I'd like a wired slim keyboard with standard layout. None of that "compact" bs that would make me hit the wrong key because its not where it usually is. Can anyone recommend a good replacement for me? I saw a couple i liked at fry's but couldnt justify spending 50$ for a keyboard today. I may have to eventually though if there arent any good suggestions.

Slim Optical Drive Adapter Screws

I have a panasonic uj-120 slim atapi drive with this atapi->sata adapter. The slim drive takes tiny screws on the back to hold the adapter on, but i have no idea what size i need. It's either m2 or m2. 5, i'm guessing 6mm long. Most places online will sell these screws in packs of 25-50, but i only need two. I'll send someone a couple bucks for two of these screws.

Dell Studio Slim Graphics Card Cooling

Am a complete newbie to modding pcs and playing with the insides of them, other than changing a graphics card or adding more memory. But i have come across a problem and the only solution is to start altering the pc. I have a dell studio slim, and when i initially bought it, my idea was to not play computer games and use it only for work purposes. Yeah right! It ran beautifully with only visual studio and sql server running but now that am no longer doing any development at home, the pc has turned into a world of warcraft machine, and am slightly addicted. Now i bought a new graphics card xfx geforce 9500gt 1024mb ddr2 low profile/half height pci express 2. 0 video card, and its awesome. I can up all the settings to almost the top in wow, and if i don't play for more than a couple of hours at a time, everything is fine. However i started to see the screen flicker on and off, and at first i thought it was my monitor. I switched to an old monitor and things seemed to be fine. So i blamed the monitor. Dell replaced the monitor with no questions, and things settled down again for a while. Until a couple of weeks ago when i put in a weekend of gaming. The screen started flickering again. I went inside the machine and noticed that it was real hot, and the graphics card was noticeably warmer. So it could be the graphics card is not liking the slim case and (now i notice) very little airflow other than the fan on the processor and the fan on the power unit. So am in need of a bit of advice. I want to buy a new case - put all the components of the dell into it, and make sure there are plenty of fans (quiet ones please) and airflow to keep the graphics card cool. This would have the added benefit of maybe buying a higher end graphics card as the slim/half height issue would be removed and be able to add in some funky stuff to make the pc look awesome. Would anyone know what type of motherboard i have in my dell and are there cases out there that will fit it, as i have unfortunately heard its a hard thing to find (or it was as the posts all seem to be really old that i read).

Ps2 Emulator

In this post i tried to say ; possiblity of emulation of ps2 on a normal pc in these days is easily workable. But due to copyright law which didn't let us have ps2's bios (if we want one, must buy console) then we didn't see any commercial inc going in that way ; for making emu & just because of this almost all ps2 emu i've seen they didn't work well, almost. Or they work if u know how, but very bad! @ Best u will have only 9fps if any other problems didn't come up. Btw from now on i try my best to write well. Oh i iforgot to say u must rip bios from ur ps2 by ur own work or someone! If not.
