Does anyone know what the power requirements are for Nec 3500 is i know that most liteon drives are 1.5A @ 5V and 1.5 @ 12v but cant seem to find anything for the Nec 3500 drive.
Yeap, thatÂ´s a fair assumption. Somewhere between 15 and 25 watts (working) when connected to ATAPI/IDE bus.
(OhmÂ´s law; P= U x I.)
As comparison, a modern $ntel P-4 CPU consumes ~100 watts.
