 HD DVD modification
After reading some threads about modifying the 20GB HDD enclosure to fit a 120GB drive, it got me thinking about the HDDVD add-on drive. Would it be possible (probablity being something different altogether) to take out the drive and swap it for a blu-ray player, or an LG (HDDVD/Blu-ray) combo drive? Maybe with a little help of some firmware swapping?
I'm going to assume the HDDVD add-on is nothing other than a SATA to USB2.0 bridge inside a powered enclosure mounted with a HDDVD drive. When connected to any computer will play regular DVDs no problem. With some software it can read data HDDVDs, and with some CPU horsepower (of which I have not), and a video card & monitor with HDCP, you can watch HDDVDs on your computer too.
