I need to find out what this is called so i can scour Amazon in search of a new one. I have this External DVD burner from Samsung, but the Power supply connector broke and i ended up tossing it away because i never though i'd need it again.
As it goes, I have a use for this now and would like to get it working again. What do i need to buy for this to have power?.
So... I called Samsung and gave them the Model Number: SE-W164L and the lady was about ready to hang up on me because it wasn't in their "database" if anyone has a starting point for me, or a place where i can find a connector to hand-wire the cord to it, i would be happy.
Usually the simplest answer to such things is to remove the drive and put it in a desktop computer.
OR take out the drive and buy a USB to IDE connector and run it as a bare chassis (the USB to IDE converter will include a power supply).
