So I figured I'd wait with the purchase of a brand new computer and use this old thing for another year or so. Problem is it only has a 60 GB HD and I need some new storage really bad. I figured an external hard disk drive would be the most easy, cheap and hasslefree option. Thing is, my computer is really old, 5 years old to be exact, so it's slow too. Few questions. - What would the best option be, USB or firewire? - Speedwise, is it the same as an internal HD? Let's say I'm downloading a 20MB file onto the drive, would it take as long as downloading it onto the internal drive? - How does the computer recognizes the drive? Like an actual HD or like a mass storage device? Thanks!
