    I still use DVD drives to record music, videos, etc... for people. I archive photos on them and give them to people who have a PC but don't know how to use file sharing sites, etc... They still come in handy...

    It may sound crazy, but if you're reusing an older case that had an old IDE CD/DVD drive, you don't want to leaving a hole open in the front of the PC. Besides, people are used to seeing DVD drives in PC's at the stores/online and their old one had one, so of course they want a new one. Nevermind that they never used the old one!
