It might help your search to use this phrase: 17mm CD drive.
Possibly of interest, period magazine article: 'Portables with CD-ROM drives won't be standard for a while : Manufacturers still trying to make drives less than 17mm thick' By Yvonne L. Lee, in InfoWorld Dec 19, 1994 (Goolag Books link).
Approximately five years ago, I found a converter board, "just the thing" which you want: it would be mounted on back of a standard SFF-8552 drive, and had a long double-row pin header (for CD audio, ATA, power). This was a product page in some Web shop, such as PCHub. After some years passed, I again searched for this product, but did not succeed. I didn't find a trace of it, couldn't find another part like it. I promise to report here, if I ever again find this converter board.
