External CD/DVD drive

Hi. I have a pc with no internal dvd/cd rom drive but I have a spare internal IDE dvd writer, turn this into an external usb drive seems a good idea. What I need to get is a 5.25 external enclosure ect. My Q has anyone done this if so were can I get the parts from, I have had a good trawl online but can't seem to find. regards

I have made up an external CD/DVD drive with a standard drive inserted into a caddy that you should be able to obtain from any PC shop. http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nbsbnoss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ecxternal+caddy+for+CD%2FDVD#/ref=nbsbnoss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=external+caddy+for+CD%2FDVD&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aexternal+caddy+for+CD%2FDVD

Amazon link I posted does not appear to work. Try Amazon for CD/DVD caddy
