Power NOTE: Whether a USB port can power a hard drive depends on the USB port itself and the hard drive you are using. This kit comes with a USB Y cable:
  • If one USB port does not supply enough power to the hard drive, you can connect another USB connector on the USB cable to the computerís 2nd USB port (if available) to get some extra power. Two USB ports together normally will supply enough power to the hard drive. If your computer only has one USB port and it does not supply enough power to run a hard drive, you can use the optional 5V external AC power adapter or USB battery box listed below to power this kit.

  •  The complete package including:
  • USB2.0/1.1 enclosure for 2.5" IDE hard drive
