Just looking at one of these in duty free. Powered by usb only with no AC adaptor. Will it work with B & M? Only £98 too. Cheers, Simon.
If it's based on a 2.5" drive then I doubt it. I have a 2.5" in a USB powered enclosure and there isn't enough juice from the B&M USB port to power it. In my experience the only ones that are likely to work with B&M are those based on 1.8" drives.Just looking at one of these in duty free. Powered by usb only with no AC adaptor.

Which Lacie 1.8" drive do you have? I have a 60gb LaCie Little BigDisk (I think that's what it's called) and it works fine.2.5" will deffo not work.
My LaCie 1.8" doesnt even work

Agree on the 2.5" drive thing though - it might work, but there's a good chance it won't.
Hmm - the 1.8" version only comes in 60GB and 120GB variants. I wonder if you've bought a 2.5" one by mistake? Take a look at this page:Yes I have the big little thingy bob. 250GB 1.8".
I bought it specifically because people on here had said it worked, but not in mine
one USB to power it. I have one myself for back up purposes. I have never tried it for B&M as I doubt it will power it.I can't answer that but what I will say is check whether it has a usb dual power chord if you do intend to use it with B&M.
I've just got a 320GB Maxtor portable drive (not to use with B&M though) and it has a dual power chord meaning you need two usb ports to run it.

LaCie - Mobile Hard Drives - USB 2.0, FireWire & FireWire 800
The only variant that's 1.8", I think, is the first one on the second row, available in 60 and 120GB versions. Maybe you could get yours exchanged if it's not the right one?
You might be better off looking into solid state drives as these will require less power having no motor.wikipedia(sic) said:The USB specification provides a 5 V supply on a single wire from which connected USB devices may draw power. The specification provides for no more than 5.25 V and no less than 4.75 V (5 V±5%) between the positive and negative bus power lines. There are two types of devices: low-power and high-power. Low-power devices draw 1 unit load, which is defined to be 100 mA. High-power devices draw 5 unit loads or 500 mA. All devices default as low-power but the devices' software may request high-power as long as the power is available on the providing bus.
