Windows 7: 5.25" dual slim optical drive?

5.25" dual slim optical drive?

Since I'm looking at building in a Fractal Define R5, I'm trying to find a solution to fit two slim optical drives in ONE 5.25" bay so I can still have a card reader in the other bay. So far, the only solution I've found is expensive; this DIGISTOR adapter plus two slim microSATA optical drives, with two microSATA-to-SATA adapters. The full cost would be close to $70. I'm curious if there's a solution out there already that I'm just missing, perhaps an actual dual-DVD 5.25" optical drive or something similar? I suppose if all else fails, I could just fabricate something myself. Any help is appreciated.

How to change the number of pixels per column for optical drive "view
I've read here that Windows does not remember folder view settings for removable media once the media has been removed. I see that it does remember to make the file name column 80 pixels wide. Much of the time this is not enough to see the complete file names. I'm guessing this is set somewhere in...
