i really like the case. i just looked for it on the link you posted, but it's currently out of stock.
i have never done anything like this before and was wondering how difficult it is to connect the drive to the case and then to my laptop.
how can i find out if this case will fit the burner that i'm thinking about buying?http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...152-033&depa=0
i've read reviews that the roxio software isn't that great, which is why i selected the model, that doesn't come with software.
do you know if mydvd by sonic and nero will work with this drive?
does the drive provide good instructions for setting this up?
any help would be greatly appreciated.

for reviews of most drives, especially the forums.
Anyway, back to the pics. Keep in mind that my combo is silver (drive and enclosure), but it's available in beige and black. Also, this case is just large enough to fit a standard 5.25" drive. I know for a fact that this whole setup has a much smaller footprint than many "factory" external units. Many of their enclosures are unnecessarily large.
