Hi,

Just looking for an external drive for my macbook ...but seems hard to find actually one Firwire 400 compatible or USB 2.0

What do you suggest Thinking.gif

Thanks

Just get a USB 3.0 drive - they're backwards compatible and will just run at USB 2.0 speed. smile.gif And they'll be forward compatible (with an teeny little adapter for USB C) for anything new you may acquire.

These are my favourite portable drives:

They're rather expensive in France... ($99 in the US...)

Here's a better deal - same thing, I think:

Or if 1TB will do, then this:
