Dear tech-savvy people,
I want to buy an external HDD.
I know what I want. I want a cheap but durable HDD with at least 160gb capacity. BUT - I don't think I can just walk into a computer shop and say those words without putting a big "DUMB" advertisement across my forehead. Or get lost in tech-talk and buy something I really don't need.
Uh, a little help to make this stupid person look halfway techie, please?
What's the difference between an external HDD and iHDD + enclosure, anyway? Any brand suggestions? I'm torn between Seagate and Western Digital (but only because I kept reading about those two) but if there's another alternative, let me know.
Will HDD work with DVD players with USB slot?
Any other things I should know about? Helpful hints, comments, suggestions? Free HDD?
Stupid non-techie person
