I need a firewire drive installing
In case you're not aware, Firewire
is a type of connection. It's like USB but faster. This is why it's often used to connect external hard drives.
There's no such thing as a Firewire drive, but there are drives that connect by Firewire. If you already have a Firewire port (it will look like either of the two below), then you just need to plug in the drive. If you don't have a Firewire port you will need to have one fitted - which is often not possible on a laptop as there's nowhere to put it.
