I've heard talk of USB Flash drives, music players attached via USB, webcams, cameras, and all other sorts of gadgets being attached to the SL-C?000 USB port. However, I don't think I've yet seen a discussion for external CD drives. Now, of course, you would need an external power source, and you probably wouldn't get very high read/write rates, but how viable is this external storage solution for the Zaurus?

The reason I'm interested is because I have a slim laptop DVD drive that I was using in my custom-built mini computer, but have moved to a regular sized computer case and don't need my laptop drive anymore, and was thinking it might be fun to buy a USB enclosure for it and connect it to my SL-C1000. However, I don't want to get an external enclosure unless I think I have some chance of making it work.

Does anyone have any insight into or previous experience with something like this? Would it be as easy as plugging the drive in and mounting the CD, or something more difficult?
