Hi everybody, I picked up a S7S a couple of months ago (good prices on amazon.co.uk now for anybody that doesn't want to wait for the new wave of slates towards the end of the year). So far no bezel lifting issues but will hold off voting in the poll for a bit as for 3 weeks I've been on holiday and not using the slate. Well, now I'm back and I wanted to set up my slate with some of the peripherals I need to make it fully-functioning for my uses (hdmi leads, external DVD drive etc etc.) But I've encountered a few problems when trying to chose a usb DVD drive. I need this because I would like to be able to watch a movie DVD on the slate from time to time, use the drive to install different pieces of software which come on CD and DVD and write music CDs and data DVDs to back up data from the slate's hard drive I've been about to buy one twice now before reading something in the reviews that made me think the product might not be appropriate for the S7S and my needs Many drives seem to require connection to two usb ports in order to draw enough power to work (or at least they say they do, then many of the reviewers state that in fact on many systems they'll work fine with just one USB connection). To complicate the issue more I think the usb ports need to be adjacent, which would rule out using these drives with the slate even when docked, right? this was the case, for example, with this drive I saw Samsung SE-S084F External USB 2.0 Slimline 8X DVD Writer - Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories hen I was about to buy this drive AmazonBasics USB 2.0 8x DVD Writer External Optical Drive Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories when I read someone complain that it wouldn't play movies, and somone responded by saying that for that purpose this drive would be the wrong product, as it is just for writing data to DVD. SO my question is, how can I distinguish between DVD drives which are also suitable for watching movies and those which are just for writing data. And can anybody recommend one that works well for all my purposes with the slate (i.e., that won't have problems drawing enough power)? Many thanks in advance for your help.
