If you connect those 2 lead ones with only one USB, you'll probably
find it drops to USB 1.1 speeds. I had a USB enclosure that did that
if it wasnt hooked into the mains.

After the first hour, i stopped the file transfer, disconnected,
plugged it in and then reconnected it and it took 10 mins to complete
the file transfer
So yeah, if its a dual USB<  i'd use em both.

My 320GB drive runs the same speed regardless of what USB cable I use.
