Exclamation vertical cd drive mod

remember how you could put your ps2 vertical? are there any dvd burners/cd drives that can do that on the market? i have some old xbox clear case plastic things that go on top of the cd drive, making a window for the cd.

the piece on the bottom left is what im putting on the drive. any drives out there that go vertical?

yo R1Coch3t, my drive is really old and u no when u open ur cd drive u insert the disc in the tray right, since it is round is cant slip down, so u just have to make sure that it has those little holders on the edge the keep it form falling OUT, not slip down, if it has that then u can put it vertically perfectly fine.

I'm pretty sure any drive can go vertical. My ASUS DVD writer can anyway. We have another one in my mom's computer, and her's is micro ATX, and it has to go vertical.

Or you could just use a trayless DVD-ROM
