    The super drive on my MBP is bust (water damage). I am planning to get a Lacie Firewire optical drive as a stopgap till I can justify the 240 pounds to get the Apple repair done. I have a question: Will Windows install and run from this external drive? I want to run a few games via Windows and Bootcamp.

    Thanks

    Should be able to, just make sure that the Opti Drive you buy says windows compatable. Though, its LaCie, so they really should be.

    Cool. I'll give a go then - off to the Trafford Centre to get one tonight. Thanks for the help.
