    Well, the inevitable has happened and I have filled my hard drive with music for my ipod so I'm going to need to buy an external hard drive to store it all on.

    I was just wondering if anyone could recommend me a couple? I want a 120gb one and preferably want to spend as little as possible (I'm a student and money=beer :P)

    Cheers guys

    I'm thinking of new one myself. So far I have it narrowed down to either a freecom toughdrive or a Lacie Rugged.

    I think I might have a subliminal rubber fetish.:oops:

    I guess if your going for cheap and cheerful, the maxtor are cheap and available here:-

    Maxtor STM3250310AS 250GB SATAII 8MB Cache - OEM = £22.99 all you need is a HD caddy to connect it to your PC:-

    Icy Box 3.5 IDE USB Aluminium Silver Caddy = £20.49

    haha! I had a look at the toughdrives as well. It's probably a good bet for me because I'll need to transport the HD quite a bit and the rubber can protect it... as well as keep Billy happy :tongue

    A cheap drive with a caddy would be good but I'm worried it might get damaged :S Cheers for the suggestions guys

    Problem is the SATA drive and the IDE caddy are not compatible with each other.
