    Sorry if this is a repeat, but I couldnt find anything.

    I have about 75 gigs of music. I dont want to completely fill up my MBP's internal drive. I have an externall drive but its too big. Does anyone know of a good, small external hard drive? It needs to be powered from the computer so I dont have to plug it into the wall. The most important thing is that it is small.

    Thanks for the advice,

    Never quite sure
    see here
    and other related threads.

    The OWC enclosure works off bus power on a PB. No problem at all.

    The only 3.5" drives that are bus powered require an enclosure from Weibetech.
