Here i’m working on Dymo PSU that failed, i most like expect leaked capacitor – but everything looks fine… for my eye… but not for ESR meter… we find a open (dead) cap that looks perfectly good and would never expect me to believe it was cause problem!
I have lot of movies on VideoCD that i bought just to have in my collection and are still fun to watch, but DVD drive on my laptop computer many years ago was switched to second HDD caddy. Only way to play them is using external USB DVD drive with is problematic to carry around:) Is there option to easy “RIP” copy VideoCD disc into video file for easy playback?
Yes… on Ubuntu and many other distributions is easy as one command.
where /dev/sr0 is our drive, in my case external USB drive after running that command, we get extracted all .avi files that can be played from HDD using for example VLC player.
Recently i got Dell Optiplex 760 as computer for driving my 3d printer and web browsing while working on my projects.
This is very good computer dedicated for office use, many things could be replaced without use any tools, just by pulling right lever You can for example extract 3.5″ HDD drive without need of using screwdriver, same thing goes to DVD-ROM.
There is also a FDD drive, with today i call obsolete (i still have couple 3.5″ floppy drives around but with USB port, in case i need read – write FDD i can) but having it hard mount on computer it’s not necessary.
I want mount old SSD drive, 2.5″ in place of floppy disc drive, but because it was using latches and special bracket i will left in option throwing it inside without securing in place…. but? i found answer… we have 3d printer.
Before designing anything myself i always check Thingverse to make sure i won’t reinvent wheel second time… and… i get everything i need! Special adapter that convert 2.5″ SSD for caddy that will swap in place of FDD and also COVER in exactly right size to fill hole after FDD. I send picture to friend, and he realize that i 3d printed it after i told him to look for it.
Here are pictures of ready print before and after install:
