Hello. I am new to the forum, go easy on me
I am attempting to connect a passport hdd to a computer that does not (Oddly enough) have supplied power to external harddrives. Do not ask me why. (Or perhaps the current is not high enough…?)
Anywho, I am thinking of purchasing a splitter Y usb cable, one femal to two males. I am thinkin if I had a phone AC Jack with a usb port plugged into one of the male usb, while the other male connected to the computer, would the device be powered and could data be transferred to the computer???
It sounds like it would work…
What are your suggestions or recommendations?
