I think you will need a USB3 drive with an external power power port. However, I could be wrong since I mounted SATA drives into seperately purchased cases.


I got an answer from the customer service of Lacie and they said it is worth trying... Their guess was that in most cases their USB 3.0 drive will spin also in a USB 2.0 port. The standby power of their disks is very low, too. But if there appears problems, they recommended simply to use a Y-adapter.
