Default External Hard Drive


I'm looking for an external hard drive, preferrably one with at least 150 GB of capacity and 7200 rpm. This is only going to hold lots of music.

I found this one on Newegg and it looks alright.


I have a question here. Once I plug in my external hard drive, can I download directly to it, like from the net or FTP servers? Also, about the USB 2.0, which I have, that's just where I connect my hard drive to the comp - just want to make sure- right? IEEE is for connecting it to your PCI slots? I've looked at some external hard drives and they have USB 2.0/IEEE334/IEEEthisandthat. Know what I mean? Anyways, all I need is USB 2.0?

Yes you can download to it directly, and you can use USB 2.0 to connect the hard drive. IEEE1394a, also known as firewire, is another way to connect it, but you can use the USB 2.0 interface.
