  • DVD Drive USB power lead

    I have just bought an external DVD drive and it mentions an extra lead in the leaflet which is a power lead that plugs into a USB port. I can't find any mention of the manufacturer on the box or leaflet. It has an ABUS36 connector so I'm thinking it's a Candy, it certainly looks similar.

    It also says it needs 5v at 1.5A, so I can't see how it would have the necessary current supplied from the USB port.

    Anyway, does anyone know where to get one of these cables (preferably in the UK). I'll get the measurements of the barrel connector in a while.
