BRYNIT & lacker - I stand corrected. I did not know that it were possible to get sufficient power from a USB port to operate a CD-RW drive. For some reason I always believed that they would need a separate power supply. Thanks for the correction.
Wee Eddie, Sorry but I have the Iomega zip 750, and a good piece of kit it is too, but it is powered from a mains lead, the u.s.b. connection is for data transfer only. This is definate as I do not have it plugged in at all times and have attempted to use it whilst the mains lead is not plugged in (not clever , I know) only to be told source was not available until I plugged power lead in.
