You will have no protection with RAID 0. You would be better served using a better RAID level for your needs. In this situation if you lose one drive all is gone. If data is important at all you really need to look to RAID 5 or better which will give you parity and the ability to lose a drive and be OK until you get it replaced and rebuilt.

Mac Pro I am assuming?? You can do software RAID, but the performance is better with a hardware solution. I have heard mixed reviews on Apple's hardware RAID controller and I have not worked with one to tell you much.

Im currently un decided what to do my idea is to transfer all in which I'm half way through my DVD making them into a m4v collection and stream on my Apple TV's i have dotted around the house. I ether leave them separately or use raid but as you say Raid 0 an 1 are un safe.
