Hi,

I want ot use my dvd burner on my laptop. its a 5.25" drive and i saw a thingy on ebay that is basically a usb 2 caddy. It looks to be exactly what i want but its £30.

Anyone got any ideas as to how i could do it cheaper??

THanks,
Matt

Yep. You will need an external 5.25" USB 2.0 case for the DVD drive.

Hopefully someone in the UK will be able to point you to a nice cheap source. :eek:

I paid about $30 U.S. for a 5.25 case enclosure.......that's about the cheapest I have found them.
