Hi folks. A friend of mine is looking for an external hard drive for a mac.She tells me that the ones she has seen cost 2-3 times more than a "normal" drive for a PC?I didn't even know they would have to be different,I don't know anything about macs.I was wondering if anyone here could maybe recommend a reasonably priced external drive for a mac.She needs it to be at least 500gb as she does a lot of filming/editing etc.Any help is much appreciated.Thanks.
Thank you for the link. As I say I don't know anything about mac's.She has told me that she understands that shee needs one that is compatible with FireWire 800.I found this one on Amazon but it says usb 2.0.Will this not work? click here Could anyone recommend one?Thanks.
According to the link fruitbat provided it does say they usually connect with USB 2.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800, or External SATA.I never told her this she actually told me before reading that,that she apparently needs a drive that is firewire 800 compatible.Can anyone recommend any good/reasonably priced external drives with this feature please?Thanks.
Thanks folks.Bremner that link doesn't work.I went to Amazon an enetered in the search External drive for Mac,firewire 800 and seen one that was reasonably priced so I emailed the link.Thanks for the help.
