Is anybody running a USB powered hard drive successfully with an ibook G4. The reason I ask is that all I want to do is format it to FAT32 to use with my PS3 (again to be usb powered only). I did buy a WD passport but that didn't have enough power so I bought a Lacie firewire for my mac, did use a iomega one with 2 usb plugs didn't work until I put in a power cable which froze the machine until i removed the power cable and the drive then worked?!! If you are running one without any external supply can you tell me the make and model.

Thanks for any help.
QUOTE Thanks
