    Can be bought off Tigerdirect.com for a little less but I can't stand them.
    so, defiler, how does that drive work for you?
    and which one did you get, the 9236 or the 9229?

    I got the 9236. I have tried it on my laptop and it didn't work well with the bus powered cable but fine with the included wall jack. On the Carputer using the add-on USB 2.0 card it works great even with an extention cable. No issues at all. Plus it's always cool to have a CD-R in the car too for when a friend likes the music you're listening to and you can offer to burn it for them.

    I just say your pushing it with the whole bus power thing .... I dont remember the spec, but I think USB is rated at 500 mA. I know they designed the drive for it and all, but still, my drive pulls 1.5 at spinup.

    I use the coolmax 63.99 enclosure. It takes a 12v in. I have run it straight off my car, and off my opus - it worked fine with both.

    according to your site, you use a full-sized slot loading DVD. THat thing is gonna take a whole lot more power than the slim ones

    i'm checking out that case for 63.99 too. if it uses 12 v in does it also make the 3 v for the dvd drive too? that seems to be my main concern. looks like just what i need to put the dvd in the dash

    Dude, I hope you're not planning to do DVD playback with Win98se and a USB attached drive! As far as I know, Win98se doesn't support the higher USB 2.0 transfer rates (480Mb) it only does the older 1.1 (10Mb or was it 11Mb?).

    Guys:
    I just bought this external USB drive enclosure. It was only $29.50 for the retail package, and shipped free within the US. It's 12v and has an external power wart. So I should be able to hook this up right to the car with a fuse.

    I tested the unit as soon as I got home, and it works great with my EPIA M10k. I watched Pirates of the Carribean flawlessly with it. I came with all the connectors and cables you need, and a worthless driver disk. The drivers are included with Win2000 or later.

    I do want to check it out and see if I put an IDE cable in it with connectors for 2 drives and see if it will do a master and a slave.
