Slot loading drives

Fri Oct 17, 2003 10:47 am

Hey folks. I'm trying to find a slot-loading DVD-CDRW drive. I don't care if it's black silver or whatever... I can always paint it. I just want to know if one exists.

Is there truly only one slot-loading drive out there? The pioneed DVD drive?

Thanks.

There isn't alot of them left anymore...what with the mini-cdr/rw's being fairly popular (and since they jam slot-loads), I don't think many companies bother with making them. :-?

I used to have that Pioneer drive and it is the only slot loading drive I have ever seen. It is only available in beige so I had to replace it when I bought my Lian Li case which is black.

I have that drive. Works well but can not play mini CDs with it. I've never seen a CD-RW with a slot loading mechanism.
