Your lucky with a Hitachi a USB to SATA adapter should work.

As far as external DVD+R Dl burners any of them should do.

You could get a PCMCIA SATA card and that would work as well. If its a v79 Hitachi you need to solder a passkey modchip. All other versions are good to go.

hitachi 78 and 79 will need a PCMCIA SATA card, all other hitachis can be done with a sata to usb convertor
