The cable is supplied with the drive. Some drives instead have you buy a separate AC adapter. Check your drive's documentation for details.

I would if the drive came with documentations other then plug the USB into the USB port...
And how to install powerDVD, Nero.
I know its a I/OMagic unit.
Its the one that Dell suggests and the one they sent (for$$$) with the mini.

Thanks

As I wrote earlier, that IoMagic drive seems to be trouble. The LG Slim drive I got from NewEgg comes with the USB power cable, but I rarely have to use it.

Looking at Newegg now but they doesn't seem to have a LG Slimline DVD-RW.
I ran a search but it only offered 2 DVD players one with Lightscribe.

Do you have a DVD-RW if so whats the part#?

Thanks

Forget it in the body is says RW...
Just didn't say it in the title of the unit

Got a LG Slim DVD-RW w/ Lightscribe form Best Buy...
That took care of all my problems.
I haven't even needed to plug the power cable in.

BIG THANKS
