    The only ones that can make use of Kreon firmware are internal I believe. You can do what I did though. I bought an IDE one, and then an IDE to USB converter off Newegg *mine cost 10 bucks* and then you can hook up the drive as if it were external.

    nice, i have one. I just thought that it would look cool if you could. Cause i have an external dvd ide drive. So just seeing if i could use the external shell to make it look cool.

    My kreon drive is external. It only needs to be hooked up through IDE if you need to flash it. After you flash it you can out it into an external box just fine.
