    Is there any issue with swappin out a HD on an older Lacie USB external?

    The drive inside now is a Seagate EIDE 5400RPM 60GB.

    Id like to get a on sale a 300gb to put in it.

    Assuming power supply is beefie enough, you think that will work ok?

    thanks

    You need to make sure your computer can handle a 300GB drive. Or maybe you
    plan to partition it into smaller sizes.

    If it's got tits, tires, tubes, or transistors, it's trouble.
