    its a lite-on external drive. I had to drill a hole in the bottom for the power cable to sit in because if you leave it sitting on the bottom it will be too tall.

    How well does the DVD drive work sitting vertically like that? I have a laptop drive in a similar configuration that is a little *flacky* and I was wonderiing if the orientation had anything to do with it.

    From my experiences the good slot load drives clamp the disk from both the bottom and top. So it doesnt matter what position it is in. The Mac mini does this too.

    The tray load drives, and the cheapo slot loads though rely on gravity, so when it sits vertically, it might not work.

    Trial and error. Read reviews and such. And usually price is a good indicator. I have the K06 or something like that, and its a CD/DVD burner and DVD-RAM drive. (slim slot load of course). Cost me $90 and $10 for the external case. Works perfectly. You can bounce around with it while it is reading something and it will be fine. Of course not while burning, but it works.
