Quick: How many amps does my SATA optical draw?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a USB/IDE/SATA adapter and I want to use the power inverter to power both hdd and optical. The inverter pushes 2 amps per 5v and 12v. The hdd draws .72 on 5v and .52 on 12v. To reduce cords, I want to power both from the same inverter. Am I asking for trouble?


edit: It is this one: SH-S203N

Complete speculation... But I'd say it'd have to be less than a HDD. I browsed the page for it on Samsung's webpage, but there was no listing. Nothing in the user's manual, either.

I couldn't find it either. I think I should be OK as the DVD usually isn't in use at the same time as the hdd.
