New toy today (300Mhz Octane) came with the SGI external CD, which looks to
be Toshiba, both mechanism and case.

Didn't notice that it needs an external power brick vs. a normal power cord,
and of course the power brick isn't there...

Not a big deal since I have other external CD-ROMs, but does anyone know how
exotic the brick is? All the drive case says is +5v/0.8A and +12v/08A. The
connector is DIN style, with three pins plus the "key". I haven't pulled it
open to see what's what inside...

Might be time to go shop the junk store for something suitable, I guess.
Would be fun with it being that SGI granite and all <grin>
