    I've got two items I need to buy but don't really know what to ask for.

    A new dvd player for a laptop. I have a thinkpad and a HP Pavillion. Both
    dvd's are buggered. Both have exactly the same form factor and would be
    interchangeable except one has a male IDE(?) plug and the other is female.
    Is there a name for this beast? 'Half height DVD and specify the connector?
    Can I get a cheap generic product for either?

    Other is something I read about in a tone magazine. A usb device for
    porting sound out with zero crosstalk from motherboard. About 70- bucks
    apparently.
