But you could get an external FireWire drive -- that runs 400Mbps, only 80Mbps slower than USB 2.0.

Check your System Profiler to see what USB standard your eMac supports.

Get the firewire DVD burner. The constant through put on the firewire port is better than on the usb port.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
