Hi, i want to store my pics and video to an external drive. I have usb and fire-wire can anyone suggest best product? should i go for usb or firewire? what size to ensure it doesnt fill too quickly? Cheers
I Like the sound of that external HD that you built. Please can you give a more detailed explanation of what is required and how to set it up for use on a laptop. Not a novice but not much into building stuff. Thanks for any help
Do as Rigga suggsts. The HD is a very good price. An external caddy is around £30 and fitting the HD is so simple but Rigga's link is probably cheaper. 250Gb is a huge amount and you can always buy another if it gets full.
Firewire or USB2, you will not notice the difference.
In 2005 there is absolutely no need to partition the drive, total waste of time. Just store the items in folders on a single partition using drag n'drop or 'send to'.
Rigga and Gandalf, thanks for the information. I am a bit wary of using pixmania after receiving electronci goods from them with every language but English in the istruction books. Can anyone suggest an alternative? Cheers
You will not need any instructions, thre HD is easy to set up....all you do is plug it in and if you need any help post here. click here are excellent for delivery and the LaCie 250Gb HD is the one that I would go for...
