No Firewire in my BookPC / USB HD??
I put a BookPC in my car over a year ago before Firewire was getting popular, thus I dont have a Firewire port on it. It is blessed with 2 USB ports though. Anyways, I am looking for easy removable storage either USB or Firewire. There are no PCI expansion spots, thus I would need some sort of an adapter to get Firewire goin (IDE to a Firewire HD would be the only real option that I have). Is there anything out that does this?
Otherwise Ill just go with a USB HD. Are they really just too slow (even to just play songs off of them)? Or is the problem just taking a long time to get songs on? 1mb/s sounds aweful, but still thats roughly 15 songs a minute. So, getting the first 20 gigs on would take a good while, but updates wont be that bad...Any comments on that?Also, are there any recomendations on a good kind of IDE to USB Enclosures (good = cheap). Ive seen a few for around 90 bucks http://www.part2.com/new/newca805puh.html
Anything cheaper out?
