Connecting a desktop DVD Drive to a laptop?

General Hardware - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
Howdy,

I have a Sata Bluray drive for a desktop computer that I want to connect to my laptop via USB3. Can I simply buy some sort of Sata to USB adapter and be done with it? I'm assuming the DVD drive needs extra power so maybe I'd have to buy something that has external power?

My laptop also has an eSata port if that makes things easier.

Thanks.
