    I was just browsing western digitals web site looking up some specs on the hard drive i purchased and saw they cam eout with a new line of IDE drives up to 200gb!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if this is old news or not, but these things are massive:eek: Wonder when ones will come out with a larger buffer???

    That is odd. I wonder why they'd go back to 2 Meg buffers after the 'Special Edition' Drives?

    Hmm... It can't hardly add any cost, can it?

    I can not understand how someone can store 200GB of data, ive only just filled up 40GB and thats with cable. Also wouldnt it be a better idea to use 2x100GB or 3x60GB drives instead?

    Trust me, when you've got the space, you can fill it. :) I had 30Gb, filled that up in no time.. bought an extra 60Gb.. now that's full..

    This was before I got off dialup internet too. :)

    Basic rundown of my drives:

    Music = 15Gb
    Games = 15-20Gb
    Programs / demos / patches = 3 Gb
    Movie / video files = 9Gb
    'Other ( ;) )' files = 11Gb
    Applications / OS = 5Gb
    General stuff / downloads = a couple Gb...
