Can someone please tell me exactly what a scuzzy drive is and what it is used for? What is the differerance between it and a regular hard drive? Please try to keep it as basic a possible, I am not up on the tech words. Thanks

As much as I enjoyed viewing your picture there Mark, I'm not sure if it's the answer allcomcb was looking for ... lol
However ... the link you provided offers a good explanation that should help.

The long & the short of it allcomcb is that ... basically ... SCSI is a little faster, and easier to deal with over IDE. It is a little pricier over IDE though.

Cheers. Cody
