Will there be a problem installing a CD drive with this?

Will I have problems installing a CD drive inside my A1200 with this?

Anyone else using this with a CD drive installed?

If it's buffered, then there will be no problem.

No, I meant with installation. I.E. Will a slim CD drive fit above the interface and still allow me to close the case?

I wouldn't mount the interface underneath the drive. IMHO it is better fitted beside it, i.e. nearer the PCMCIA end.

Why not add a sata adapter to it and position the cd drive externally with an esata connector? That board would be perfect to use with an adapter.

you could mount it the oppisite end to the floppy drive.or in the middle of the back of the case.

but you may need one of these anyway.

the only part of this that may give you a little trouble is the sound from the cd drive,if you want them both comming out of the same port or mixing them.
