Best removable storage for IDE / DOS installation?

I'm working on a legacy DOS system in a factory application.  One of the existing "features" is a ZIP 100MB backup on IDE.
I'd like to go to something more reliable.
The application is somewhat pushing on the 100MB capacity but not a problem yet and this can be worked around.  Yet, a bit more capacity would be "nice to have".
What might you suggest?
I'm rather considering a CD burner.  I have no idea how to begin with making that work.

You may want to consider a removable IDE hard disk in a caddy.

If the drives will be inserted and removed frequently, I'd recommend aluminum racks and trays.
