I feel that this is the update you all were looking forward to?
Haha! Especially the DVD drive.
I can understand the controller ports and how they're gonna work. if it were me i would have dremeled the old ports out and put the new adapters in their place but, your way is so much more elegant
I just cant visualise the DVD drive and how its gonna attach, take/read the disk etc. I know you've got it figured out and that it will work, its just can't see how it gets there. Does that make sense, I think not
So, no rush or pressure I'd rather you finish this project well instead of badly cos we're rushing you for updates
