    I was thinking of adding a second HD to let iMovie and Photoshop use. The main reason being to try and keep my main HD clean. I know that both apps can generate a lot of "trash" and I dont wan't to get my main drive too fragged. Alos, I know that a second drive will help the performance of photoshop.

    Now, what kind should I get - SATA or FireWire?

    Also, if anyone has brands that they like or dislike that would be good info.


    Thanks,
    Doug

    What type of mac do you have? Also, would you want to move the harddrive from place to place?

    i'm guessing that since you mentioned SATA you have a G5
    an internal SATA will be much faster less clutter than a FW one even a FW800 will probably also cost less with SATA

    Yep I have a G5

    You were right I have a G5. The dual 1.8 system with 1G ram.
