*Ignore this mate, I was miles off, will find for you now, lol.*

Never used an external drive in my life.

You say PS2?

Are you sure?

You can get PS2-USB adapters cheap but they are usually for mice and keyboards. Never known a hard drive have a PS2 connection.

Now you have lost me.

Why a USB>USB?

Maybe should of put lead there lol

the ps2 plug will go into the ext hdd, that needs a usb A connector ? then the other end needs to go to her pc, so she can take info from the ext hdd ?

so usb from pc, to ps2 plug to hdd
