Ugh, money issues here too, ATM. But if it's just the power plug, no problem. Splitters are available. Data connections are different, tho. If you're out of those, you're out, unless you have a PCI(E) slot to stick an expansion card in, and if you're out of those too... And of course if your power supply simply doesn't have the power to spare... but 2.5 inch drives tend to be power sippers as they're designed for battery use, and if you're running /that/ close to the edge, power-wise, you're risking instability anyway. But of course hard drives themselves cost money, and if things are as tight for you as they are for me right now... But it's nice if you have the few extra $$ for it... -- Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs. "Every nonfree program has a lord, a master -- and if you use the program, he is your master."
