Yeah, external hard drives are the way to go, you can get a huge amount of storage for hardly any money. I've got a 250GB one and I have to put everything on it because the 40GB laptop HDD isn't even enough to hold just my music.

Re: O/T- lookin for a usb storage device/card

The computer is use is my family one and at the moment it really needs a format, so I bought myself an external so I could have have my own memory without having to faff about moving it in the future whenever someone can be bothered to format it.

I only use it for pics, music, music vids and college work to be honest, so I think 500gb will last me a few years lol.
