Using an External Optical Drive Enclosure to House a File Server @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Profezzorn’s project to house a RPi in a 5.25″ optical drive via hackaday.com:
The enclosure that he’s using is meant for a 5.25″ optical drive. It comes with a USB to SATA converter which is how he connects the hard drive to the Raspberry Pi serving the files. His mounting system uses the original holes in the enclosure, the threaded holes of the drive, and the holes in the RPi PCB to mount everything with just ten screws.
