    You misunderstood the question. I do not want to install the HDD inside the computer, I want to be able to plug it into a USB socket, and for this to work it seems I need an extra 12v power supply, which at today's SSD prices costs about half as much as a new SSD.

    Well its your own fault. No country should try and elect politicians that the americans do not approve of. How dare you like Lula, when you all know very well that Obama/Trump and the previous 45 crooks have forbidden the world to like anyone who makes politics in the interest of the people, instead of the empire?

    :evil2: = :fear2:

    The army is just a tool of other thieves....

    Lol. Ever heard of bankers? Of top manager and the car industry?

    Lol. If human rights can't be stolen then you're right.


    Actually any ego is born to become a thief.

    :thinking:
    Hi Yen, it's good to see you, I hope you're well :)
    hmm I totally agree I am of the time that here anyone could walk at night or at dawn that there was no problem, today but things have changed and for example thieves kill people because of a cellular misero what for me is a device that petrence to an alienated generation and is leaving almost everyone in another dimension! ;) well I'm already old and maybe I do not get much for this world but I think the tower of babel is coming :rolleyes:

    I did not say that I do not prefer thiefs to some other possibilities... and on the other hand,,, what does a North Korean have that is worth stealing. Come to think of it, that will change after re-unification.
    It does not matter how old you are, you should still remember that there have always been streets where you were robbed and streets where you could walk any night safely.
    And also... there have always been airplanes dduring your lifetime to take you to safer countries...
