Making internal computer DVD writer external

I had a computer DVD writer kept aside because it was spare and was unused. Now, I am thinking of using it too along with the existing DVD writer which is presently installed in the desktop. Have anybody tried this way? Can a DVD writer be placed outside on the table with the computer cables coming out if the CPU. I may sound strange but this kind of installation will help me saving space on my table as I can hide CPU somewhere below the table and stop using the installed DVD writer. Any guess? Is it possible? What are the other technical implications?

Yes you can of course connect two DVD writers in a single system. You can go up to any no of drives as long as there is enough slots available.

As mentioned in the question it is not crazy. But when you take the cables outside CPU, you may need really lengthy cable and also make sure the CPU casings are not fully opened, because it will lead dust accumulation inside the CPU.

As you need the CPU to be kept down, consider the cable length. It may make some noise as there will be noise due to the read and write execution
