On checking Amazon’s description of this drive ( link), I’ve found this:
_ USB 2.0 interface - Powered directly from the USB port on your PC. No separate power supply is needed*.
* An optional cable is available for the few computers that limit power from the USB port._
Can anyone tell me if this is actually true? The manual and any other references within WD’s site don’t say so, but they don’t contradict it either. From what I know, No Non-SSD disks can draw enough power from the USB port to operate. So I’d assume this is incorrect. But I wanna know for sure.
Thank you all for your time.
