Re: External hard drive recommendations

At 5 years old, it very well may not have one.

As far as speed goes, if you aren't constantly moving files back and forth from the HD to your computer, USB 2.0 will give you the speed that you'll need. At least I never felt speed deprived with my USB 2.0 HD.

Re: External hard drive recommendations

I purchased a Western Digital MyBook and have no issues with it. When I upgraded my laptop to a brand new desktop, I actually ended up taking the enclosure apart and pulling the drive out of it to put it inside the desktop instead.

WD makes good stuff. I would stay far away from Maxtor imo. I haven't had good luck with their drives at all.
