I have a number of HD-DVD's .., what drive are you using to read these discs into your system ...?

The cheapest and most fuss-free solution would be a Xbox 360 HD-DVD addon drive, which you can connect via USB 2.0 to your PC.

AFAIK most if not all the internal HD-DVD ROM alternatives featured a PATA connector, for which you need a SATA male to IDE female adapter nowadays.

I have a number of HD-DVD's that I would like to salvage. If you don't mind, what drive are you using to read these discs into your system and how are you making the connection(sata, usb, etc.)?
I use an LG GGC-H20L SuperMulti internal SATA drive. It's very rare nowadays but there is a used one on Ebay for $69.95 US
