    i was looking at that one but they don't take fricking amex the twats, i get 5% cashback on it so i'm bying everything on that at the min.

    hopefully one of the other web retailers will match them.

    so i need an external hd, is this even if there isn't anything on the current 60gb i want to keep??

    I got two of those a couple of weeks ago from dabs just over 100 for both iirc

    If you don't have anything you need to back up then no just take the old hd out put new in format it and you are off.

    If you don't want to keep anything just swap the drives and it's job done once formatted.
