comment How can I make the computer see a SATA DVD drive as a USB DVD drive?
It is not just one disk. I updated the question to try to be more clear.

I know that I cannot pass SATA drives like USB drives. That is the purpose of my question. The VM is on the server, not on the local machine so I can't attach the disk in the drive.

Yea, I realize that. I was wondering if there is any way to just trick the computer into thinking that is what the DVD drive is. Like a virtual DVD drive as a USB device or something on the host machime

comment Why do manufacturers not show all hardware power usage?
Yea, but that is just because it prevents you from hitting the cutoff temp right?

I know this is more of an opinion here, but I would say peak power used without overclocking. I guess I didn't realize that a change in temp causes a significant change in current. I know that a change in current causes a change in Temp though.

With that said, I am wondering why those values are not posted for better PS selection.

In my graphics card example, I do mention my ideal of Base and Peak ratings. I realize the differences, I think it would be useful to know the base power consumption and the peak levels to ensure a selected PS fill fit the bill.

@Hennes I realize the mobo usage is variable based on the PCIe cards. If you are given the wattage used by each PCIe card, you could figure out the wattage needed for mobo operations. On optical drives, plenty of people still use them....
