Hi Folks,

I was intending to use a 2.5 inch usb external hard drive with the 500gx. The external case needs a 5 volt supply to complement the usb power supply. Has anyone wired up an adapter to split the voltage from the asus power suplly to feed a router and a hard drive? Is this safe to do?

Thanks,
LK

No, you need an external PS.

Solved it myself, this should do the job....

However I'll have to keep an eye on the max current allowed.
