You are right that if I take off the two different adapters off the two cd drives, then yes, the orange "ribbon" cable used to connect the hard drive and optical drive can be used with the imac drive. the only issue is, that it isn't long enough for my purpose. So I need a way to use IDE.
BTW, what is the connection called on the back of the optical drives. Is that SATA?
Also, is there anyway to upgrade usb to 2.0? Or a usb 2.0 to firewire adapter?
