I asked the question because I was aware it didn't come with an ac power adapter and felt you may have indeed used an adapter that did possibly supplied to high a voltage and/or amperage to the DVD-RW, which may have in turn bleed into the mini. This may have caused some of your problems. Can't be sure, just speculative on my part.
The cord is a good place to start. A powered usb hub would be the second if the first still gives issues.
