    Can the usb port handle a external drive that runs off just one usb cable? Or are the only external drives that will work are external powered drives? With the hack ATV Flash of course installed.

    I don't think so unless you hack it.

    The USB port should provide power for a suitable 2.5" drive/enclosure combo. The USB standard provides a 5V power line, but not a 12V power line so you cannot run 3.5" drives from it. If you try it, please report back here.
