    External optical drive case

    Does anyone know if it is possible to buy an empty case that will take my old DVD rewriter. I am now running a Mac Mini with win XP(via Bootcamp) and I want to be able to use my old drive from my PC.

    Definatly available. I have a few of them in use here. The ones I use can take either optical drives or hard drives since it has a blanking plate supplied with it.

    I suspect they're all like that.
