  • firewire or usb for hdd?

    going to use a laptop for my car pc, planning to leave the 20gb drive in it to put my os and programs on and use a 200gb external drive so i can take it to my home pc to add songs and back it up. my laptop has usb and firewire so is there any need to get a firewire drive (i will have to buy a firewire card for my home pc) or will a usb be fast enough? most files will be mp3 but i may save a few as wav for better sound quality. thanks!

    USB 2.0 is fast enough, but I'd suggest firewire. I'm having all sorts of hell with USB and hibernation, shutting down, recognizing... god it's killin' me.
