OT DVD External drives

Completely way off topic here but what I am dealing with today
Has anyone ever taken an internal CDROM/Burner or DVD Burner and made it
work via a USB port?
I have a external drive kit that I use with a 40 gb hard drive just fine
Makes it a USB 2.0 drive and works very well
Well I got a DVD Burner for much of nothing and I got a external case and
when I hook it up via the USB Cable, the computer sees it okay but I cannot
read the drive
And the drive flashes orange like a busy lamp

Any ideas?
