Can I daisy-chain these two?

My 500 GB eHDD is nearly out of space. I am considering a NAS with a mirror or another eHDD.
Can I daisy chain any kind of USB eHDD? I have a Lacie Quadra drive and am considering a Lacie Grand.

No, you can't daisy-chain USB. You can however use a powered USB2 hub. For daisy-chaining you need firewire connectivity. FW is superior for external devices anyway.ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
