Quote from miro:
We have approached some vendors in regard to a custom cable. However, the prices that vendors are asking makes the cables quite unattractive to buyers. The only way to offset this equation is to get a bunch more requests for the cables. This would enable us to order a much higher quantity and pass the savings on to the buyer.
Is this the type of cable being fabricated here?
Thanks for the great "how-ya-do-it."
Well, I guess I will answer my own question -- NO. The combination SATA connector I linked to above is a "standard" size connector. What's needed is a "SlimSATA" connector common for DVD optical drives. :(
