Sounds good...This may be the missing part for me to mount the Carputer in the boot.
I just wanted to share some information regarding the Storix USB 2.0 DVD.
First of... the question I had was how to power the DVD...well it comes with a AC adapter, and a extra cable to power it from a 2nd USB port or keyboard port. The bad news is that if you are using it on a laptop you will need these adapters..... he he but I have the VIA M9000 with a DC to DC power supply and guess what... the USB port supply enough power to power the DVD. One cable is all that's needed. I ended up putting the DVD in the glove box for easy reach…
Just thought I’d let everyone know

I am curious to know how that storix drive works out, i have used the buslink, and i am not very happy with it. It doesn't work 1/2 the time, freezes, makes the comptuer slow, etc...
Please post how you like this model.
looks very interesting...

Well, I've had the Storix in the car now for about a week... and I've watched DVD, played CD,MP3's, and Installed programs while driving and so far I have not had it skip or give me any problems what so ever. I live in Boston and we are known for our potholes and crapy roads.....(Bent to rims a couple months ago $#@^%$#@)
If you have any Q? post them...
i have the buslink slim dvd-rom and most of the time, when i start my computer (winamp auto starts) the mp3s skip, and the only solution is to remove any cd in the dvd drive and restart. DOes anyone else have that problem w/ the buslink?
is DMA turned on for this drive? Does your mobo sport usb2? Enough ram? power?Originally Posted by amrit50
doesn't xp turn it (dma) on automatically? It's an older Gateway PIII MB, w/ a PCI usb 2.0 card. It worked perfectly w/ a full sized dvd-rom in a usb 2.0 external case, that's why i think the issue it w/ the buslink drive. 384 MB ram. I have tried w/ the usb/ps2 power adapter and without w/ the same results.
