i dont think usb offers enough power, this is the reason they all come with power adaptors
Is there such a monster? I need a USB powered DVD/CDRW with an enclosure. I found some on newegg, but they all have power adapters. I know about the IDE to USB converting and such, but its going to be shoved in my glove box, so I need an enclosure for it. Help a brotha out here. Anyone found one?

I have an external unit that has a Panasonic DVD/CDR and is USB. It draws its extra power from the PS2 connection. The connector still allows me to use the PS2 mouse connection.
I'll try to find the link where I got it.
it does work great by the way
Here it is....
I did have to wait for shipping cuz they had problems with the power supply. I have seen these without any external power as well, so they probably add their own. I believe it will run off the USB bus or with external power
Just found this....
