    In most cases but especially with your setup transferring data from an internal to internal drive will be much faster than to a FW drive/case.
    Thanks Randy, i think you might have over looked this but commmunist is on a PB not PM so he has little choice for internal2internal. You are right with the FW800 though fast but a little pricey.

    BTW speaking of FW speed ..... what is version is your firewire??

    My Powerbook only has 1 Firewire 400 port. It doesnt have a 800 port .
    My external has 2 Firewire 400 ports. Last night I switched it from Port A to Port B, and the problem went away. Im already searching for a new external hd. It's manditory that it has a Firewire 400 port, 7200rpm and a Oxford 911 chipset to record Pro Tools Audio's Sessions. If you have any recommendations, feel free to let me know.

    Hey guys thanks to all of you, for your help and patience. Alot of people wouldnt waste there time with a noob. I appreciate it.

    This is what I use and would go with:

    FW400 Granite Case Kit
    Seagate Barracuda 160GB 8MB cache
    200GB model

    1. 8MB cache
    2. high density drive (2 platter, 4 read/write heads)
    3. Great case and cables
    4. Excellent performance in FW drive.

    A FW port on a drive case can go out. You might want to move it to a new case as well as get one with a Seagate drive.
