    A lot of high end computer cases don’t cater for 5 1/4 inch internal drives anymore, mine doesn’t.

    is the PC drive a reader, or a burner?

    Many thanks :-)

    That is definitely a more flexible solution - as Andy Burns picked up I'd forgotten the burning function which explains the cost difference. I also
