I have a trusty sony dvd burner and i don't want to change it. my enclosure died on me last night so i'm planning to buy that adapter instead. hence, the question.

the laser will eventually die on any burner if you use it often

i don't often use it. i only burn files on discs when there's not enough space on my HDD anymore.

i don't want to use an external hard drive for that matter since i had plenty bad experiences with those.
