    Also, what size is the drive?

    I guess you need an externally powered drive. There was many people in the same boat with older PS3s.

    thanks that will be my last resort, do you think a ac powered usb hub would work?

    I do add movies and pics often so keeping the "portable" HD would be my preference even if I had to buy a hub
