Most of these USB 2.0 drives (2.5 inch or smaller) do this just fine with USB power. In a pinch I use a USB 2.0 Y cable for more power.
Then for firewire I just get a firewire card for my camcorder. I would not trust Windows with a firewire connected drive today.
Im looking for the above PCMCIA adapter. Most you have to plug in an external power source to get the card to run a small (2.5") external USB hard drive. Im looking for one I dont have to plug in external-power.
Anyone know of Models/MFR's that sell that?
If not, what criteria/specs do I need to search for (e.g. Watts, Amps, etc.?) Thanks.
