If there are unused connectors on the hard drive ribbon cables, and unused molex power plugs, then yes. Be sure to securely mount the drives in the case. Also check the jumper settings for all drives.

How do I copy the files on a Simple Tech 250GB USB2.0 External IDE Hard Drive to a new 500GB USB2.0 IDE External Hard drive?


If you have them hooked up to the same machine, you should be able to drag and drop easily. Just find them under "Computer" like any other external drive

Can this take a 7200 RPM HDD?


The only compatibility issue for a hard drive with your laptop is the interface, whether it's IDE/PATA or SATA. Seeing as it's an old laptop, it's probably IDE, and I don't think you'll find many 7200 RPM laptop IDE hard drives. All the 7200 RPM laptop hard drives I know are SATA. So, probably not. If you need more help with your laptop repair, contact me through my website.

Does simple tech 250 drive need an external power source?


Yes, you need a power supply. I have several USB peripherals that, in a similar way, APPEAR to be on when you plug them into USB. But that interface cannot supply enough power to actually run the machine. The maximum is 0.5 A * 5 V = 2.5 W. The wee portable drives can run on that power, but a normal desktop drive, such as is inside a full-size desktop external enclosure, use ~ 8 W.

So you need a DC power supply! I bet SimpleTech can tell you what the correct current, voltage, and polarity is. Good luck.
