Any thoughts on a recommendation on a good external hard drive to hold video data? That stuff eats up space!  ::help::

I have a Western Digital 180 Gig My Book.  It connects via USB and is basically as easy as using a Thumb Drive.  I have all of my Cd's, Pictures, Sermons, School Work, etc on it. It is easy to use, and I was told that every thing was secure as long as I powered the hard drive up once every 6 months.

The reason that I went with the Western Digital My book is because I have had great experience with their internal hard drives. They have a Terabyte with a three year warranty http://www.westerndigital.com/en/products/Products.asp?DriveID=270

I have had mine for 6 months and no issues but I would hate to suggest one and then you loose everything. Their warranty won't recover your time or the data you lost. What kind do you already have?

JAIA,

I would come help, but it's kind of far.  Once I billed you for my gas, it'd be much cheaper to just buy it ready made.
