OK. I just read my manual and they say you can do what I asked in the following and there is a HOT SWAPABLE 5.25 to 3.5 enclosure adapter for this. I just have to find the best. That is good news!: Please read the "oh also in the bottom:
I have an M58 7360AKU SFF PC with the E5200 cpu I just opened up my pc and discovered the dvd burner has the same connectors (data and power) as my sata drive. If I put a 2nd hard drive in there (taking the dvd drive out), will the bios allow that? And if so, does Lenovo have any ready made braket adapter for this?
I would then just use an external burner. This is to make a portable live music system even more portable.
Oh also...if I upgrade my cpu do I have to also upgrade the graphics? I just use the on board now.. Would it be the same if I upgrade to higher "E" series as "Q" series?

Fantastic..yeah, I don't care about hot dock just the ease of putting in and pulling out. I will make one system for home and a duplicate for road, both using that drive and maybe an esata. Thanks Alot for the hot swap info.
