    I was looking to buy an iomega hard drive because of its portability and firewire. Here's one I found on amazon at a discount : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Iomega-500G...BMDQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1289149335&sr=8-1

    Everything seems fine but for something so portable and easily lost (or stolen/misplaced) as well as carrying my entire mac backup (docs, photos, videos, etc.), I think password protection or some other security feature is essential nowadays.

    Does anyone know whether the imoga hard drives have password protection or not? If not, are there any other hard drives with both firewire as well as good security?

    Security has nothing to do with the drive itself. You can use any drive you choose. You can use any drive format you choose and any security method, such as encryption, that you choose.
