    Just bought myself a Travelstar 250gig drive that I want to put into my MBP.

    Now I have an external drive on USB2, if I put my new drive in this housing, will I be able to clone the existing 160gig drive using CarbonCopyCloner? Through USB2?

    If I can then I will take out my old drive and put in the new one, and hopefully be able to run my computer as before.

    Any feedback welcome!:)

    Yep

    Carbon Copy Cloner will do the trick

    Thanks - I've done it over firewire, but not USB2 so wasn't sure it would work the same:)

    Carbon Copy Cloner works over USB 2
    It won't be as fast ;)
    Now Migration Assistant is a different story
