how to get additional ports on slim?
how to get additional ports on slim? –
i have slim, with one external drive (wd essential 1 tb), and ps3 move
so both usb ports are full... i'd like to get a second drive (another wd essential 1 tb), and have them both plugged in at the same time in order to see my entire library... is there a way to get additional usb ports?
my drives are not powered... must the hub be powered? i kind of like the look of a couple i've seen that just snap on the front, but i'm not sure if they are strong enough to power the drives
a powered usb hub should do the work
(i didn't know that the move needed to be connected to usb :S)
YEAH! USB hub, cheap as chips!

I am about to add a 3.5 inch 2TB Samsung to the mix though this is externally powered.
