I am streaming video and audio from my computer to a helios x5000 media streamer. When I stream from my maxtor shared storage network drive (connected to my linksys 802.11N wireless router) I get poor performance. Streaming from files stored on my computer hard drive do fine. It has been recommended to get an external drive connected by usb for better performance without using up all my internal storage.
Can anyone recommend a good, fast external drive? I'm not sure if my machine is usb 1 or 2?
