Not saying that the 500gb card will not work but I wasn't able to make it work. Other users were able to use the 1TB card so there shouldn't be a reason why you can't use the 500gb. I think the issue is when you format the card via USB instead of in a motherboard slot. The photo in the eBay listing you posted is the old stock photo, the new batteries now have printed the voltage and capacity on them. And seriously they work marvelous.
