When using external hard drive take my advice.

KEEP IT SOMPLACE SECURE SO IT WON'T FALL TO THE GROUND AND DESTROY ALL YOUR INFORMATION!

I was copying my Storm Chasing videos to my new external hard drive after I was done I deleted them off of my hard drive. I went to get a blank DVD when I knocked my drive off of my PC and if fell a good 12 inches. It started making a *click* *click* *click* sound and i felt sick to my stomach. Sure enough, Windows 2000 saw the drive but I could not access the information, I had to repartition and reformat the drive for it to work.

The Good thing is I have backups on DVD's but gad did that piss me off!

Storm chasing vids? That's cool, where did you get them or did you take the vid yourself? I used to have quite a lot on VHS but gave them to the local library. Still love to watch the famous "underpass" segment

Taken them all myself or by my other storm chasing buddies, I go every year you should try it out! www.stormchasing.com

I did lose about 3 Gig of MP3 I have for my Nomad, I can redo them but what a pain in the butt; sadly I think I lost some pr0n as well.

And finally dangit, this little thing gets hot!
