    Thinking of getting a usb hdd. I was just wondering if someone could tell me is there a limit to the size of the hardrive or any other compatibility issues i need to be aware of?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Any cheap easy to get hold of recommendations, i don't know where to begin to look on that list. As long as the device fits a couple of games i don't mind.

    FreeAgent Go is always a good choice as long as you make sure to turn off the power management settings. I just got a 320GB FreeAgent in the mail today for $42 on ebay. Not sure if it's necessarily the best deal out there but nothing to really scoff at. Wal-mart typically carries them too.

    If you are going to buy something, you might as well go big. You will probably regret it if you dont. I can only recommend something that I know works and that would be a Vantec NexStar CX, it is an external case that you can put any 3.5" SATA drive you want.

    Is there a size threshold ipawii? If i'm going to go big, i don't want to go too big and find out it doesn't work. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    EDIT: Doesn't matter, ordered a Antec MX-100. So hopefully with that i can just plug in any Sata 3.5 HDD, right? [​IMG]
