I have a few Enclosures for 2.5"/Laptop SATA drives. I have used them with 160 GB drives.

I want a 500 GB USB drive that does not need external power, so I am thinking of getting a 500 GB SATA drive and putting it in my enclosure.

I am unsure if this will work. Would 500 GB SATA drives use a different standard the the 160 GB drive I used that would not be compatible with these enclosures, or should they still work?
