Netbook Conundrum

USB to SATA & IDE Drive Adapters

I’m guessing a lot of you have a lovely new netbook, but perhaps you chosen one with Linux on to save cost, or it only came with linux and no option for windows.

Why not install windows yourself? But wait. You’ve got no CD/DVD drive since the new range of netbooks don’t include one because of portability reasons. You might be thinking of buying an external CD/DVD drive, but why spend money on something you may already have and only use once?

If you’ve already got a CD/DVD drive in your desktop computer why not use that? All you need to do is pop the side off  your PC case, to access the drive, and use a convertor – our USB to SATA & IDE Drive Adapter or our Drive Adapter with One Touch Backup will do the job perfectly. This would let you plug in your drive to your USB port on your netbook! Then you simply choose to boot from USB and it should read the CD/DVD drive and away you go. That saved a bit of time and money didn’t it?
