Hi Samm,
Well i went out to check out for the powerd usb hub as u had suggested but the problem is, which ever shops i had visited they just show me the same usb hub which i had with me. and they just tell me like they don't have other than which i have. Can you tell me the specific name/techninal name of the powerd usb hub or company which sells powered usb hub.

Or is it like i have to look out for Hdd case which take its power externally.Cuz the Hdd case that am using rightnow gets it power from the usb port.

anxiously waiting for ur reply!

Hi Tenzi

I don't know where you live but I've included 2 links, one for an Engliah site (ebuyer.com) & one for an American site (newegg.com). Both links are examples of powered USB hubs. Hope this helps.

(NB the picture in the ebuyer link is not apicture of the device that they are advertising!)

Let me add some uncommon knowledge about USB drives:

1. Self-powered enclosures sometimes fail on any PC - like Startech's junk.

2. Most self-powered enclosures will work on standard desktops. The vast majority will fail on notebooks because a notebooks favor power saving over consumption for obvious reasons.

3. AC-powered drives are preferred for the above reasons, despite defeating the idea of true portability. Shame...

4. If a self-powered enclosure is a necessity, PS/2-powered versions are more reliable. Unfortunately, most new notebooks omit PS/2 ports.

Good luck!
