Slot Load CD DVD Drive - what IDE-USB adapter with NO AC adapter?
I'm looking for a slot-load CD/DVD drive to install below my Xenarc fold out monitor, and want to find a suitable ide to usb adapter.
Lots of them come with AC adapters. I know the power adapter is NOT required for laptop 2.5" HDDs, but it IS required for 3.5" HDDs - so i assume its required for slot-load drives too????
I want one which is USB powered, similar to the external drives which are powered by only USB. Can someone suggest a solution?
