ifj,

Been there, done that with them.  And they usually work fine for me.  I use a USB 2.0 External Enclosure.  Mine is actually a cheappy generic 2.0 USB enclosure.  Dual bay.  I run a CDRW and a DVD rom in it, so I could move it between both machines at work.  For Testing purposes.  Firewire may be a better alternative if you have a slower machine that may not keep up.  Since Firewire is a tad bit more stable and faster than USB.
