    Hi
    I just bought a new 5.25 external housing which I intend to put a DVD writer
    in (after they have settled down in features and price!!!)anyway I have
    installed an old CDRW (16x10x40 Acer).
    It works fine and was very easy to set up ,but it seems to heat up the
    actual cd
    I can put a cd in the drive for only a couple of minutes,take it out and the
    cd is
    REALLY hot.
    I've never noticed this before in any cd drives,could it be because of the
    confines of the housing?
    Any thoughts?
    John
