    Since I couldn't find any cheap external DVD-ROM drive, I decided to buy an internal one and make it external. I heard that it is possible to do this by a case and SCSI cable? is this true? how canI make an internal DVD-ROM drive external to be used by a laptop or desktop?
    thx,

    I put a DVD-ROM into a USB 2.0 case for $49, worked like a champ. :)
