Well this seems to be pretty unreal, I went to a thrift store yesterday and guess what I found. Found 2 Maxtor external hard drives. Only paid a buck a piece for them. From what I could find out they are 80 gig a piece. They dont have the power cord or the firewire. Would Radio Shack carry these items? I guess I need to get a firewire pci card also. If anyone could give me some info on these and how to use them i would greatly appreciate it. How do I go about formatting them? Maxtor External Hard Drive Model # FWRA080VUL001 Thanks for any help.
