Hard Drive for Wally

I want to get a 2tb HD. Samsung makes a 2TB Expansion drive that is similar to the 1tb sold by Dish. Here is a link to it:

Model #STEA2000400
Will this work as a DVR drive for the Wally when used with a Winegard Pathway X2?
thanks

In order to enable the DVR feature on some single tuner HD receiver models (Wally, 211, 211k, 211z). The EHD must have its own power supply, have a USB 2.0-compatible cable, meet the size requirements for the receiver to which it is connected (Max 2TB), and have only a single hard disk drive (flash memory is not compatible).

The drive listed in that link is a USB 3.0 which would not work, and is USB powered which will not work.

Isn't usb 3 backward compatible with usb 2?
Can you recommend some 2tb drives that are compatible with the Wally?
thank you

You're right, I completely spaced the USB 3.0 backwards comparability. As far as a power supply: an example you will need an external hard drive with an AC adapter such as [url:142ooad6]http://www.wdc.com/products/external-storage/my-book.html[/url:142ooad6]
