    You need to be more specific about your HDD. Western Digital has produced more then one 500GB HDD model.
    Beside that there're so many HDD models that it would be a surprising coincident if someone else used the same model, reads this thread and has a account here.

    If the HD has its own power plug with it you'll be fine. If it doesn't you absolutely will need a Y cable.
    Edit: I just checked the model. Yes you need a Y cable.
