    Should work for you, but as cactikid said, you need to correctly format it first. There is a set of instructions on the blademedia site that will tell you exactly how to format the drive. (scroll to bottom of the page)

    I have a similar setup on mine were the drive is only powered by the USB and workes perfectly.
