Hi there,

I wonder if anyone can offer me a bit of advice. I was looking to purchase an external DVDRW when I came across the following offer



5.25" EXTERNAL USB2 CD/DVD ROM HOUSING ENCL KIT (M001416) for £29.38

And

SONY DWU14A 4X +/- R DVD WRITER IDE OEM (M002463) for £76.32

Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to set up an external drive using the housing enclosure and is it suitable for any 5.25" DVD RW drive. My OS in XP Home.

I would be grateful for any help.

Cheers
K.

Provide a link (just copy and paste it here) to the 5.25" EXTERNAL USB2 CD/DVD ROM HOUSING ENCL KIT (M001416) for £29.38 and someone can advise...

To be honest it probably easier than installing in a case as there will be more room to move. 4 screws and 2 / 3 cables and your away...

Also any 5.25 housing should hold any CDRW as they are a standard size to fit in a case...
