Newer hard drives powered thru the usb jack
« on: May 20, 2021, 08:20:13 PM »
My 500x is still going strong but one of my external hard drives is failing and I need to replace it but I was wondering seeing as most hard drives are now powered by the usb jack, my old one is powered by an external power source.
Can the 500x power a 2tb hard drive thru the usb jacks? Or do I need to have the hard drive powered externally?
Thank you for your time
