I only have a 40gb hard drive which means I need more storage. I am thinking of getting an external hard drive but wonder if it will play audio and video okay as I have a slow 1.1 USB connection.
Another consideration is that I am able to transfer audio and video from my computer onto my i-pod but if I moved the files onto the external hard drive would that mean I could connect the i-pod directly to the external HD which presumably would have a USB 2.0 connection and would therefore be faster?
just switch off uplug remove side remove screw and back plate push card into slot firmly secure with screw from back plate refit side and plug in switch on Xp will find and install new hardware put in the CD and let XP load the drivers from the CD if required.
Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/ That's just what I have been unsuccessfully surfing for. Makes me a whole lot more confident. I have installed a new DVD drive in my computer in the past so I think I'll give this a go.
