Gp2x Official Cradle And The F-200!

one of the issues regarding the 2.5" external hard drive not working could be power related. my 2.5" external (usb) hard drive requires either an external power adapter or the custom cable that came with the external case, it uses two usb ports, one for data and one for power.

if i use the external power adapter, i only need to plug in the one usb cable for data.

does the cradle allow you to use an external hard drive to store apps and such and still load and run them on the f200?

i know it's a noob question, but i just ordered my f200 on 05/09 and was thinking of ordering the cradle, but after all the issues i've read, i may just wait.
