CD-Drive power Answered
Hi, i have a desktop cd rom drive 52x max, i want it to connect to my laptop using IDE to USB cable. I have the cable, I tried to connect it but it's not working i think it's because it needs more power. on cd rom drive its written
DC 5V -------------1 A
DC 12V -----------1.5A
I know i can buy the power cable, but this time i would like to do it myself with battries...
At the back of the cd rom drive it have 4pins for the power, but i don't know how to connect the battery with the pins? what voltage should i use? n which pins?
