Backing up your video to DVD is one way, but it can be pretty labor intensive. I’ve done it quite a few times, and even slapping 30GB to dvd’s seems like too much of a hastle. You’d need a heap of time and discs to backup your two 250GB harddrives!
I currently use an external drive for backup. It’s pretty painless to transfer files, but it also carries a heavier initial investment than DVD discs. FireWire800 is currently the fastest way to transfer, without investing in a fibre network ($$$$). Though it’s not as common as USB2.0 and FireWire400 connections. Those will work fine.
