    My DVD drive worked with my SP2 but not my SP3.

    The SP3 can read the content but not install any software. I suspect there's not enough juice.

    Could I replace the cable or do I need a new SP3 compatible drive? if the latter, any suggestions/recommendations? Thanks

    I'm guessing that worked and you have solved the problem?
