  I had a drive like that.  The sign said, 10MPH.  I thought,
well, that means 20.   No, the sign was right.  I MEANT 10. 
5mph if your in a normal car.  I got a close look at that Tree
on the side but exited unscathed, except for a slightly bruised
ego. :-)
  Nice thing about CD drives.  You can ALWAYs break them to get
at the inside.  If you dont mind buying a new CD-Rom. :-)  Have
you tried the power connection on the back of it?  Maybe it came
  good luck
