    I just purchused a Hitachi 500GB Travelstar internal HD to replace the 250GB HD and I have a few questions about the directions on cloning.
    Do you need a FireWire or USB enclosure for the new drive?
    Do can you use disk utility or do you have to use a program like carbon copy cloner or super duper?

    I used a USB interface along with CCC. It cloned it and I rebooted to the external to test it.

    Confirmed. USB is fine for any intel machine. Not a day goes by that I dont clone a machine.

    I use super duper, and you can use a USB, Firewire, or a HD dock if you have one. There are lots of threads on this as well as you tube and various other forms of information. Good luck.
