To begin with, USB supplies 5V. The 4-circuit i.Link port does not. Hence, your USB device won't even receive power.
If you really want to try out PS2ESDL's i.Link support, you probably need to invest in an HDD enclosure that has a real i.Link port. But beware that compatibility with chipsets is a hit-or-miss thing, since the development of the i.Link drivers didn't progress very well.
So far, the only supported chipset is the Oxford 934, which not all enclosures will have. To find out, you have to look at the electronics to find out, if the product's manuals do not say what chipset it has.
