I need to integrate a 9.5 or 12.7 mm laptop optical BluRay drive into a small form factor case that only accepts a slot in drive. I have the slot in drive but it some small/slim ATAPI/IDE.

The problem I am facing is that the mini-ITX main board does not have IDE and the laptop BluRay drive is IDE.

What adapter that will allow me to interface this drive to my main board?
