Question Hard Drive Case

heres the link:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182036


I have an old IBM Travelstar (10GB) ATA/IDE (2.5") that i want to put in a case and thats the one i found only problem is that the description says you need to use the other USB connector if the Hard Drive uses over 500ma.

The thing i want to know is will it work? cause the Hard Drive i is rated at 500ma 5v......so will it work with one connector or will i have to use both?

Oh, and if anyone suggests another enclosure try to keep it under $20

I think that 1 plug should work since your right at the 500mA mark.
That's basically all the power usb can output for 1 port.
