Which kind of enclosure do I need for a desktop Optical Drive?
Hi guys. Lately, my laptop has been having problems with burning DLs, (I've updated it's firmware, though it's back from 2008... Having a Dell XPS M1530 with me) so I've decided to grab a DL burning Optical Drive from a long dead desktop I have in my house. I just wanted to know which is the size for the Optical Drive so I can buy the external enclosure via Amazon
( Amazon.com: Vantec NexStar DX NST-530U2 5.25-Inch IDE to USB 2.0 Optical Drive External Enclosure (Black): Electronics ).
Is it 5.25 the conventional size for normal Drives?
Drive Model : MadDog MegaSTOR MD-18XTFI (Dead Desktop)
