I'm wondering if this would do the trick.
It uses the combined USB+eSATA port to provide power from the USB port and data using the eSATA port. It looks like any SATA drive would connect to it but I need someone to confirm as they say it is only to "upgrade" GoFlex drives.
Anyone tried this with a standard sata hard drive (laptop or desktop)?
PS yes I do have a combined USB+eSATA port on my laptop.
