    No idea, either, but you could go here:

    http://www.dealsonic.com/3usb20en.html

    (3.5" drives)

    http://www.dealsonic.com/25usb20.html

    (2.5" drives)

    for the cheapest prices I've found for this sort of thing.

    You'll have to buy the case and then take the USB to IDE bridge out. It's really easy to do and the only thing you'll need to do after is provide a +5V connection. Bonus to this approach is that you'll have a regulated 120V to +5V and +12V transformer plus a little 12V cooling fan. Warning: YMMV as I've only done this with the the 3.5", never the 2.5".

    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. If you manage to find this device, let us know because it looks quite useful.

    Here's the one I got. I've only used it a little bit during testing. I hooked my DVD drive to it, and was able to play a DVD and read from it just fine.
