Okay, as planned I put the Nec 2510A in a Prefect FireWire enclosure. It is totally silent afaict. I didn't do many test yet, but I found out that the drive is recognised as a DVD reader by MacOS X. Disk Utility doesn't support the drive for burning. I can burn a CD with FireStarter, it works fine using the generic raw driver. I didn't do any performance testing yet.
