[filmscanners] RE: Slightly, somewhat OT



I recently purchased an ADS Drive Kit that lets you put whatever drive
inside it that you so desire, and it is really easy to do.  I have about
three drives that I use besides the internal two + the burner and DVD
-roms that are installed.  It is USB 2.0, and will also run USB 1.x.
They also make a firewire version.  I don't know about firewire stuff,
but this has been a very timely purchase for me: it works great.

Subject: [filmscanners] Slightly, somewhat OT


I want to purchase an external HD to back up my my scans as well as to
back up my entire system including the OS.  I just had a hard drive with
the OS crash and have lost all my preferances, patches etc and don't
want that to happen again and  so the extra HD externally seems to be a
good idea for back up as well as burning my scans to CD.

I just want to make sure I understand Firewire correctly as it pertains
to getting a back up drive.  I have a FireWire card installed and
working with my Polaroid SS 4000+.  It has 2 ports.

Do all devices that function with Firewire have an In and an Out port so
they can be put in a chain?  If put in a chain do all the devices in the
chain need to be turned on ?  Is there any downside to putting them in a
chain?.

Finally, if I were to only use the external drive infrequently for back
up and used the second port for a different peripheral, can I unplug the
peripheral and plug the hard drive to that port and use it or is a
specific port somehow dedicated to a specific peripheral?

Thanks

Howard
