I needed to purchase an external hard drive to store audio, video and image files as well as keep backups of our data disk. Can someone suggest which drive would be suitable for my requirement?

the most compatible external hard drive to share accross wide range of computers would be an IDE / ATA drive then buy an external enclosure to put it in


have a look at IDE drives on newegg.com pcik a size and price range you like


then look into external storage enclosures (dont pick the super cheapies and avoid the high end as well)


I will try to give you a median example (there are cheaper enclosures)
