Default External Drive

I want a usb external drive a 20gb or maybe 30gb would do. I just want it for all my music and other things when i reformat. I would like to not spend above $50 dollars and that does include shipping. Thanks

i dont think there is a drive with that much capacty with that price range. you might be able to get a 40gb and a usb to ide converter or a case that has it all for under 100.

Western Digital 40gb HDD $39.99

or

Western Digital 80gb HDD $43.99

and the case

Scythe USB 3.5" External Enclosure $16.99

I was just wanting one of these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822154623

In a 40gb if not i guess i can break the wallet and get this one. Actually that one has bad reviews can someone point me to a better one in that size or smaller?
