Hello fellow CD Freaks! I still like the old name
Can someone please help me with this? I am hoping to get a Sony AD-7240S for use as an external reader/burner. However, I have found a problem with the power requirements of this model as it needs: 12V@2.5A and 5V@1.5A. There were two external enclosures that I was interested in but the power supply of each was rated at 29 watts and technically insufficient for the needs of this 24X dvd burner which seems to need at least 37.5 watts ( that is 12V x 2.5A plus 5V x 1.5A). The enclosures are the Welland ME-340J and the Vantec NST-530SU. Even most external power supplies for HD/DVD are rated at only 12V@2A and 5V@2A which again is insufficient for the 12V@2.5A requirement.
Does that mean that there is going to be a serious power supply problem if I try to use the combination of the Sony AD-7240S and either the Welland or Vantec enclosures or indeed any of the gererally available 12V@2A 5V@2A power supplies? Have any fellow CD freaks managed to successfully use this exact combination at the maximum rated burn/read speed of 24x DVD without any damage to either burner or enclosure? The last thing I want to do is to buy the burner and find that I cannot use it as an external burner. Or worse still causing damage to either or both the burner and the enclosure after I buy this.
Thanks in anticipation for anyone who can assist
