    soo what i want to know is for those that use USB Loader and hard drives, what type of hard drive do you use for it? do you use;

    - ac adapter one where you need to play the adapter to a power outlet

    or

    - plug n play hard drive. no need for ac adapter.

    -----------------

    i want to get a plug n play one but i need to find a job first. i just want to know if anyone uses the plug n play kind, how well they work, and if they can recommend one to buy online.

    I use the AC Adapter drive, but that is cause I thought that is what was needed. But it's great cause it has a fan which is very useful. In addition the drive never powers down unless I choose to shut it off. It sucks to get off the couch to turn it on and off, but thats no big deal.

    I opted for a USB powered seagate 320gb for $79 rather then the AC powered 500gb for the same price.

    I split it up and gave 180gb to my usb loader and the rest in fat32 for my PS3's music/videos.
