Most external hard drives and DVD/CD burners have both firewire and USB 2.0 inputs. SInce my last usb 2.0 hub burnt out I was wondering if I should replace it with either one of the two. I've never tried firewire. Is it faster, more efficient than usb 2.0? If I wanted to get a camcorder I would definitely need firewire. Although I still have a usb2.0 connection on my PC should I upgrade to firewire? Is that an upgrade?
