Hi, I have an external firewire Que! CDRW drive that I don't use anymore because my powerbook has an internal CDRW drive. I took it apart and the CD drive connects to the firewire controller via a standard IDE device and 12v power hookup.

I would like to buy a DVD burner and swap out the CD writer for the DVD burner. Just wondering before I buy the drive, would there be any problems with doing this? Here's the link to the drive on newegg:

it's a NEC Beige 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 4X DVD+R DL 16X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X - 2M Cache IDE DVD Burner - OEM.
Model #: ND-3520A BG

Also wondering, what software I could use to make backups of my kids DVDs? they are scratching them all up.

QUOTE Thanks
