  • External USB DVD Power

    I just bought a Sony External Slim USB DVD RW drive.

    I just have a question regarding power.

    I am going to be putting the dvd usb into my 7 port powered hub.

    I was going to power the dvd to the 5V line on my molex connector, but was looking at the power adapter that came with the drive and it requires 5.2V.

    Can i still run the dvd drive off the 5V line even know it requires 5.2V?

    If not, is there another source i can get the 5.2v from?

    I will need to power the drive as it doesn't run solely of the usb. It does require power.
