Question on slim line DVD sold in store: power cable?
I purchased the slim DVD drive along with the case, and was surprised to find that the 'power cable' has one end that fits into the case, and the other is a standard USB connection.
How should I / how are people using this cable? plugging it into another USB port? My experience with that is that it's rarely as good as having a solid 5v power source. Are people cutting off the USB end instead and wiring it to a power source?
Any guidance is appreciated.
