I recently purchaced an 80gig FW hard rive and I'm wondering, why are there L and R RCA audio out ports on the back? Or are they audio in so I can record AIFF sound to the HD??:confused: Thanks for the info in advance.

I'm just guessing, but it sounds like the hard drive is in a generic Firewire enclosure which can also be used to house a CD-ROM drive, which does have analog audio out. I bet if you opened up the enclosure you'd see a lead from the RCA jacks to the 4-pin audio connector CD-ROM drives use.

Yeah, that makes more sence than audio in, doesn't it :). Thanks for the info.
