i have an internal cdrw drive and i would like to convert it to usb .

Try looking Tiger Direct and seeing if they have a kit that can do this, I think its tigerdirect.com
Oh my, is that cd on fire?? I smell some hot plastics...

Look at the orange button at the top 6th over from the left. It says Search. You can use this to help !!!!
