Hi Guys

I'm after a bus powered 500GB external drive, but I can't seem to find one that runs on 1 USB connector alone.

I just had to return a freecom unit as it would only run with the USB data and a seperate USB power lead connected.

Does anyone know of somewhere in the UK that does either a firewire or USB 500GB notebook size drive that will run from one lead?

I have G Technology external drives, both G drives and mini drives. They have models that utilize USB, FW400 and FW800 connects. BTW, I just received a FW400 to FW800 adapter that works well. It is manufactured by Sonnett and was $14 from a large photo mail order company called B&H in NYC.
