Right... as it happen's my sister has brought a netbook, however it needs formatting and for some reason it doesn't want to boot from my usb memory stick - I'm guessing that's due to me using a M2 card & usb adapter. Anyways now that leave's me to having to use a external dvd drive, this is something i refuse to buy as it's not for me, so she's settled on buying an external dvd drive enclosure so we can put my dvd drive into that and then format her netbook. Now the problem is the enclosure I seen isn't there no more (on an online site), so that leave's me trying to find a enclosure what is suitable and cheap enough for her to be happy to buy, bare in mind she only spent £40 for the netbook in the first place so doesn't want to pay around the same to get it working. which makes sense i guess. so please if there's any UK guys about who know of any good enclosures or something to help me out then i'll be very grateful EDIT: Another question is... would a external hard drive caddy do the same job?
