Kinda leery about using one of those things though.....I've heard several horror stories about people frying the drive with them. Hopefully that won't be the case with ours. Thanks for the reply!
I have used mine 50 or so times. The only problem that I had was when I connected to the USB first and then plugged the power in. The USB port quit working until after a reboot. You don't have that issue with a laptop HD since it is powered by the USB. I even use an old laptop HD as a backup device.
