Help buying an external hard drive for use with FCE 4 and firewire camcorder. Thanks

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Hi all,

Hopefully there is someone out there that can advise me.

I have a macbook. 2.16ghz, 2gb ram, 160gb hdd. I haven't yet moved over to Leopard but will do shortly.

I am looking to purchase FCE 4 and an external hard drive to use with my Canon HV20. (Obviously the HD projects / imports will take up lots of space on any hard drive)

Here's my question. I would like to import my HD footage from my Canon HV20 using firewire straight to an external hard drive. As I only one fire wire port I would be looking for an external drive with USB 2.0

Will I have any problems with the speed of the hard drive being connected via USB 2.0

Are there any other things I should look out for.

Any help would be much appreciated.
