Alright, so I’m in the process of purchasing a couple external hard drives to get a head start on this before I bite the larger bullet of ordering the sotware and camera. Here’s where I’m at so far…
LaCie 1TB external HD, very affordable at $165 each from Dell. Only problem is it doesn’t appear my PC has FW 800 connectivity (heard Vista doesn’t support that interface yet…?), so I won’t be able to daisy chain two of these on the 800Mbps side. So here’s the big question, do I get two drives and daisy on FW 400 or just get one drive and connect via eSATA?
Thanks again for all the help!
