    I have the first (lite-on) it works so good and it is very beauty... but i have connected it only with a 2 meters usb cable, i don't think it needs a powered hub coz it is powered itself. Just be aware: it needs the power, it doesn't get the power from the usb port! Then with the usb cable you need to run another 12v cable (you may re-use the original drive psu jack, cutting the power cable). Here's mine:

    thanks for the help -- is it possible to cut the power jack and adapt the 12v to the m2atx?

    Hope this helps. Not all slim slotloads are 12V. Mine happens to be 5V. It recieves it's 5V from a modified barrel plug adapter connected to the 5V rail of my PSU and the USB is routed through a powered usb hub. Works just fine on the bench so far.

    IDE would work with convertor. But IDE spec max cable lenght is 3 feet, so if it's in your trunk, it won't work.
