    What is the best way to make copies of all my MP3's and photography etc? I don't want to mess around with CD's? I have heard of USB Data Sticks? Can you buy large storage ones?

    Please excuse my crap knowledge of everything PC! :)

    You can buy ones up to 2 GB now mate. I even think there are small portable hard drives which go up to 4gb.

    Cheers mate.

    Anyone know a good site to order data sticks from at good prices?

    It may be just as well to buy a small external USB HD enclosure and get say a notebook 2.5" HDD to go in it. That or a readymade external HD.

    Get yourself an encased external laptop HD. I've got one thats 40GB, you can get massive ones though. Cheapest ones are on eBay, as they're all from Asia

    Ebuyer.com are pretty good for small external drives, the link below is for an 80GB USB2 portable drive:

    I've got a custom made 60GB, and it's brilliant for moving/ back up data.

    If you're not fussed about the physical size of the external drive, PC World were advertising a 320GB one for about £80...

    Hope this helps,
    J
