    I just bought a 500 gig wd hd for my MacBook. I'm currently uploading all my stuff from my old of so I can get rid of it. Now my main question is, is it possible to rum the information soley off the ehd? I'm transfering movies and music and I dont want any of it on my MacBook so it doesn't take up space. Will it work? Thanks

    Sure it will. Do you want to be booting from this drive too?
