Hi everyone, I am concidering building a portable harddrive to store all my music on, but am not sure what to use etc. Should I use a IDE or SATA Hard drive? It is for home use so speed is not a real issue. I would prefer it to work like a flashdrive - if possible - so that I can just plug and unplug it in without restarting pc, I would prefer it to have USB power also so I don't have to plug it into powerpoint. I have 2 different brands of hard drives available, these are WESTERN DIGITAL and SEAGATE - which is more reliable? (both 7200RPM). I currently have an internal seagate hard drive and it has treated me well. I only need about 50gb of space but would prefer it to be around 80GB-160GB. What will I need to purchase as well as the hard drive itself? And is it possible to put a 3.5' HD as a portable with usb power? Because 2.5' are so much more expensive... I suppose I'll need a cable of some sort, a case... Anything else? If possible could whoever is so kind to reply also state the price of these items (either in Australian $ or USD - please specify). I am looking to spend around $100 AUD which should be approx $70USD. Is this possible or is this a bit unrealistic? I will state some of my computer specs in case this makes a difference: USB 2.0 2.6Ghz Intel celeron 80GB Seagate baracuda 7200 RPM hdd 512MB RAM 128MB graphics (fx 5200) That should be all, I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me and look forward to your reply, sincerely, Korrupt EDIT: How do I know if my PC is compatible with SATA hard drives?
