Hello all, im using a G4 apple mac and the hard drive is just way to small for recording i want to use an external hard drive to record onto so i can plug it into other computers and just transport stuff. Do u think a usb 2 7200rpm external hard drive will be fast enough? anyone recommend anything?

Should be fine, for low intensity stuff. If you're trying to do 16 tracks, at 192khz, then I'd say no, but if you're doing 2 or 4 tracks, at 48, or 96khz, then you're probably fine.

Having a 8m buffer will help. The USB 2.0 should be fast enough for most stuff.
