DVD burner in firewire case
on Mar 10, 2004 at 12:08:21 pm

My desktop machine is pretty outdated, and will not support the current DVD burners. I do my NLE on a Toshiba laptop (1.8GHz, 512MB, 60 GB, Firewire) which works surprisigly well. However, the laptop only has a CD-RW drive, and I was wondering how practical it would be to use something like a Plextor 708 or Pioneer A-07 burner in an external firewire enclosure.

Would this work, and any recommendations for specific external firewire cases?

thanks

Answering my own question, I ended up using a NEC 8X DVD+RW/-RW drive($94) in a ADI external USB/Firewire box ($45). Works like a champ.

Footy, thanks for the question and answer! You have given me a great idea and I will try the same setup here. I have just run out of space to add any more IDE drives, and SCSI drives are not on the shelf at my local parts store...This would be a great idea.

Dylan
