You probably didn't get help because it isn't clear what you are trying to do. For what purpose do you want a cd-rom drive? Is it connected to a computer? Anyway, my recommendation would be to buy an adapter from Radio Shack that puts out 5V, rather than try to make one yourself.

You don't need 100W for a CDROM drive -- probably more like a couple of watts. Just use the car 12V straight for the 12V (maybe filter it a little), and use a 7805-type linear regulator to make the 5V. Pretty straightforward, and a lot cleaner supplies compared to using a DC-DC converter.
