    Uhm, do you have a 3.5 inch dvd-rom then?

    Usually they need a 5.25 inch enclosure, you know, 'cos of space not being curved enough to fit that big a volume in so little of it.

    But if you are wondering about whether you can buy something similar which your dvd-rom will fit in, then yes, there are 5.25 enclosures too.

    Not sure about slimline dvd-roms if that's what you have, though.

    You should buy a Plextor, then.
    Mine will warp the space/time continuum, which is a very handy feature.

    For instance...I am able to burn copies of DVDs that haven't been created yet.
    Let's see the RIAA get me for that.

    Err

    Yep, I'm getting a Plextor then




    Incidentally, I could fit a cd in a 3.5 slot.


    But it was just the cd, not the drive, and I kinda' broke the cd
    Had to make sure, though

    well...of coz i dun have a 3.5" dvdrom
    but suppose say i use the back of my external enclosure (which contains all the cables and etc) to connect to my 5.25" dvdrom, will the dvdrom be functional?

    I think it will work, the interface would be the same.

    In theory, as clocker says.
