Has anyone tried useing a DVD (apti ) as an exernal via usb in one of these

No, but thought about it, in theory it should work.
The cases for IDE DVD drives are just larger tahn the ones for a 3.5 hard drive.

I've been running a CD rewriter in an external caddy for several years with no problems.

I have one the same as your first link - have used it for IDE hard-drive, both 2.5" and 3.5", also with DVD ROM, all worked fine, as of course they should.

Hmm, just looked at your link again - mine is not quite the same, but very similar.

Exactly what I thought you meant, I still think it should work.
