Greetings, I have upgraded a friends iMac to 10.3.4, and they have run out of room on the internal drive... (6GB) They are very scared about the thought of starting over with a new HD, since everything works... And I can't blame them. So, I suggested a CDRW, OK done, but they want to store lots of MP3's and such, in addition to backups... I want to get them an external USB HD.
I know it's gonna be slow, it's just for storage - and accessing music.
I have never run into this issue before, as I mostly work with towers and Firewire capable macs... So I need arguements to convince them to upgrade their HD, or options I can tell them about - external drives... I understand that you can find USB 2.0/1.1 enclosures cheap, and I have many drives to plop into them...
Any issues known about using a USB 2.0/1.1 enclosure on an iMac as an external drive?
