Been looking at getting some more burners but have no room in my case for them So I figured there has got to be some sort of case that would hold 8 5.25" drives and use a firewire interface.
Then I got to looking around and a firewire->ide converter that supports a single channel with master and slave is like $100. Kind of expensive. Would I be better off going with one external enclosure per burner (cost wise), or a multi-bay case with built in firewire?
I plan on adding 1-2 drives at a time, and not buying 8 at once. Also, I really don’t want to spend more than $100 on a single burner/enclosure combination, or more than $150 for a multi-bay unit and one drive (is this asking too much?)
I’ve found single drive enclosures that would work fine, but anyone seen multi-bay?
