I just got a Samsung SH-S223 and it seems pretty well enclosed. Am I correct that all I need to connect it to the e-SATA port on my HTPC are these two cables (and a small power supply ((I have a wall wart that puts out +5V and +12V))???http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10226&cs_id=1022603&p_id=3750&seq=1&format=2http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10226&cs_id=1022604&p_id=1253&seq=1&format=2
A modder after my own heart :bigsmile:. Yes. You might search "sata esata" at ebay and save a bit of coin. There are also back panel adapters to pull external sata power from your computer. What is the amp rating on your power bug? You'll find from .5 meter to 2 meter cables. I'm using 6 of the 2 meter cables currently without problems, but truthfully it shouldn't be any longer than you need it to be.
Not much of a chance pulling power. Very small footprint PC: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883103266
K. Nevermind )
Does that wall-wart put out a decent amperage level?
I'm sure it's good for 10 or 20 Watts. Came from an I/O Magic external burner.
