Hello all!

I was just wonder if it will make any difference if i buy an IDE or SATA external hard drive?

My computer has only IDE cables so I was wondering if it can read an external hard drive?

Many thanks

You can use either as all external drives connect via USB or Firewire, so long as your computer has the correct corresponding connection you'll be fine. USB2 seems to be the most popular so your computer would require a free USB2 port.

Thats what I thought but I just wanted to double check.

Thanks!!
