Default Re: Picking a Drive: Thinking Either IoGear or Western Digital Help

how can it be smaller than an internal drive? an external drive is just a hard drive in an enclosure, all hard drives are the same size, unless you buy one with a laptop drive in it, which would be smaller.

An External Hard Drive isnt always an Internal Hard Drive in an enclosure -_-

And that at zipzoomfly requires external power other than the USB cable

What Creative Zen do you have? I was thinking of getting one of those That play the videos </random? lol

But yeah, I think I know what external one I want, Its 250 Gigs and cost 150 bucks, Its about the size of an open wallet too
