Sony MPD-AP20U - Can I use this to install linux with to a laptop ?
I just brought this : Dell Latitude LS
for my laptop. I noticed that It didn't have a cd rom drive & it comes with no OS, so I wanted to use this as my cd rom drive: Sony MPD-AP20U
My beef is I don't want to buy this thing and find out I can't do crap i.e. boot off of it to install linux (as I am not savy enough to do some kind of remote install...well not yet anyway) with it (I don't have it yet) also I don't want to buy a an external media (drive) crap that will cost me extra bucks & won't work in my winboxes. The device uses USB 2 as it's main interface... Good or Bad idea ?
I now realise this is in the wrong forum, but any help would be awesome.
