Default Laptop drive in Desktop

Hi... m new to this forum..

I was designing a case and wanted to know if the CD-Drive of a Laptop could be used in a Desktop PC?

i mean.. can it be removed from the laptop and connected with a desktop PC motherboard?

And another thing... are CD-Drives available with top open mechanism (like in a discman?)
thanx

i don't know if it can be done with laptop cd drives but there are adapters for laptop hard drives. why do you want to use a laptop cd drive? i have not seen a cd drive that has a top open mechanism

look at micro ATX motherboards. you may be able to get a laptop drive working because they are based on IDE its just they have a different connector and i don't know if you can get an adapter.
