I'll make this as brief as possible. I have a 15" 1.5ghz powerbook and an 160 GB Lacie D2 Extreme external hard drive. I would like to capture all my DV footage to that external drive. Since I connect the external hard drive through my FW800 port, I still have a FW400 port available. So here's my question. Would I get better performance daisy-chaining my camcorder to my external drive or connecting it directly to the powerbook? Keeping in mind that in either scenario my footage is going saved onto the Lacie, does anyone have enough knowledge in this issue to offer an opinion?
