|A friend of mine overseas needs me to ship her data on an external hard disk drive.|
How do I figure out which drive would be compatible? She has an HP/compaq nc8430 laptop running Windows 2000, though she says she'll switch to Vista in a couple months.
I'm concerned because she said some ext HDD don't work with her machine. In particular, ones w/o their own power source.
Would it be enough for me to buy a USB 2.0 ext HDD with its own power source?
