Hi

Could anyone please let me know which hard drives work with the 7020 DB.

I know the spec is for a UDMA66 IDE interface but what about ATA or UDMA133 etc etc.

I suppose what I am really asking for is an addition to the idiots guide about which hard drive to buy.

Also is the capacity about 12GB per hour of MPEG2 video at 3 to 4MB/Sec.

I have no connection with this company.

Seems a resonable price and it's recommended by Dream Multimedia.
