Default Adapter to use old Dell D600 laptop DVD drive on 10V? - 09-24-2009, 07:09 PM

I have a Dell 8W007 DVD drive from an old Dell D600 laptop that I'd like to be able to use with the Mini 10V. Link to description here

Does anyone know what (if any) adapter may be available to convert this drive to an external USB DVD drive? I think it is notebook IDE.

Thanks
