powering external blu ray drive/enclosure


Standard Member
Hi, I am a looking to buy an internal blu ray drive and put it in a compatable external enclosure to save some cash as I need one for my laptop. The ready made externals are rediculously expensive in comparison.

I am looking to run this with either ESATA or USB, both are supported by the enclosure and my laptop.

I cant seem find anywhere if this requires its own power source, or if it can draw power from the laptop through USB/ESATA. If so do you know what voltages/type of adapter I would need?

Sumvision Tempest 5.25" eSATA To USB Enclosure
Samsung SH-B083L 8x BD-ROM

Any help appreciated, :lease:
