Default External Box IDE->USB?

Hi,

Does anybody know of an external case that will allow me to hook up an IDE DVD-Burner through USB. In other words I know there are external cases that allow IDE burners to firewire, but I would like the flexibility of using USB. I don't know if this type of thing exists, but I would like to find it if it does.

I realize I can buy an external DVD burner, but I already have an internal IDE burner and would like to use it with my laptop.

Thanks,

Thanks for the quick response, the items above were for 3.5 inch cases, but I found what I needed at the same place..
