My 2TB WD My Book is nearly full of movies, can i daisy chain it (if so, how?) to another or do I have to use another USB port on the iMac?

What I am trying to ask is that because it only has one USB port in the back, would I need to use the second WD My Book independently and so use up another (and last) of the USB ports in the back of my iMac.

Another question is would a USB hub be suitable to run more that one external hard drive?

    There is only one USB port on the back of this external drive.

    So in theory, you could purchase a usb hub that has a power supply (that is important, otherwise the speeds would be horrible).

    plug the powered usb hub into the usb port on the mac, and then attach your external HD(s) to the usb hub.

    Hope that helps.
