I was wondering if they make a 1t external hard drive that runs off strictly a usb. (there is no power plug in needed). I know they make them for 500 GB, but that is all I have been able to find. Please help if you can. THANK YOU!!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I know of one, although it is a little pricey, and the power comes from Firewire interface

Lacie drives are very high quality, i have one and love it. I don’t know if this drive can do the trick of using 2 USB ports to get enough power, as some lacie drives do. However, they do have <a href=”http://www.lacie.com/us/products/product.htm?pid=11087″>excellent docs</a> so perhaps you could find something there

Buy a 1GB 2.5″ laptop drive and purchase a 2.5″ USB drive enclosure. It will likely not apply, but who knows with certain vendors, you should check if the enclosure has a hard drive capacity limitation.

======================

If you are referring to the external hard disk drive which has the capacity of 1 Terabyte or more, I would answer that it is possible to buy or use 1 terabyte external hard disk drive. However, it is still better to purchase a lower capacity hard disk drive if you believe that you cannot use those spaces at its maximum.

    I saw a 1TB external drive at OfficeMax the other day...I can't confirm the interface(s) it had but may be worth a look-see.

    My 1T external has a D/C power supply that has to be running for it to power up?
