Hi all,

I'm new to the fact I'm new to the mac period. I had been usinga Dell desktop that I bought that had Windows 98SE. I had upgraded that unit as much as I could and felt it was time to get something more up to date. That's when I started to look at Apple. I have to say that I really love this iMac of mine.'s my question. I had an internal DVD multi drive that I put on my Dell last year. I took it out when I bought the mac.
Is there anything out there that will let me run this drive as an external drive... like maybe some sort of housing? It's an LG GSA-4166B. Anyone have any ideas?
