    Hey guys, just wanted to give you a heads-up on a cheap USB loader compatible drive:

    It's a 250gb Verbatim, which is listed in the Wiki as working with the loader, for $50 and free shipping. I just ordered one, and am hoping for the best - I've been putting off playing with USB loader until I found a good enough deal, and this one seemed pretty good to me. Hope someone else finds this helpful; sorry if it sounds like an advertisement or something.

    For people in the USA, Staples also has a bunch of USB HD's on clearance at the moment.
    160Gb Maxtor drive is $40 (this one draws too much power to work from a single USB though)
    250Gb Simpletech is $70

    There are others too. Talk to a manager if you don't see what you want. The don't always have the displays updated.
