    Question Internal DVD recorder to external USB

    I mistakenly purchased an internal DVD recorder (Memorex brand) that I cannot return as I purchased it quite a while ago as a backup and just opened it the other day, discovering the error.

    I'd like to convert it inexpensively to an external USB drive. I'm finding lots of cases for slim drives, but not for the regular CD/DVD size recorders.

    Can someone point me to some products/web-sellers for this?

    Also will any case (other than the slim type) work or do I need something Memorex specific?

    Question How about adapter instead?

    Rather than a case, someone suggested an adapter which makes sense to me as I believe I could then also use it to recover data off an internal hard drive if/when a computer goes bad.

    Any suggestions on this? The internal drive is E-IDE. I'd like something inexpensive but of course something that works well.
