Apologize if this has been asked before … did a search … couldn’t find anything.
I have a Dell D800 laptop and it came with a 60GB hard drive. However the disk is pretty full so making DVD backups on the disk is not possible.
I do have an external DVD recorder (Plextor 716A) in an external case (USB & Firewire). I also bought a 3-port Belkin Firewire Card (Cardbus). I was thinking of using an external firewire enclosured hard drive and connect it to one of the firewire ports and then use the second firewire port to connect to the external DVD burner. Then rip my movies to the external hard drive and then after ripping & transcoding, burn it to the external firewire DVD burner.
Anybody tried this setup and had success with it?
