external serial ATA is six times faster
External because they can hold as much capacity than portable one's.
A user memory for an operating system are the devices in which data is stored. These devices can be built into the computer, such as the hard drive, or they can be an external device, such as a USB pen drive or external hard drive.
Yes, if your computer operating system will recognise it as an external storage device
There is a wide difference between the internal system unit and the external system unit. The internal system unit is usually mounted on the motherboard inside the computer while the external system unit is independent of the computer like an external drive.
Of course it would. If you are copying your C Drive onto an external drive, then are copying it to an external drive, aren't you?
personally i'd say buy an external hard drive, as it will be much easier
No because most external ones need software and you cant store the soft ware on the external one This is inaccurate. An external (USB) hard drive can replace an internal drive providing that the operating system is located on the external drive AND the BIOS boot sequence is set to allow booting from a USB device as the first boot device.
External SATA (eSATA) is up to six times faster than USB or Fire Wire
Some motherboards support boot from external USB drive amd/or eSATA. You need to check BIOS settings (the external drive should connected) to make sure that your computer is capable to do so. It the motherboard is capable then you can install operating system on the external drive (if it's an usb drive be ready for low performance).
In our old computer I put a SEAGATE 500 gig External Hard Drive. The computer was windows XP Is it a working chance to use the external hard drive From The system i first installed it.
Drag from your pictures folder and drop onto the external drive. If you formatted the external drive on Windows you probably won't be able to do this because Windows uses a different file system than Mac OS X.

External serial ATA (eSATA) hard drives is up to six times faster than USB or FireWire.
Install all your programs on it and install your OS on it (OS = operating system) I for one wouldn't recommend installing an OS on an external hard drive though.
There are multiple methods to installing an Operating System on an external hard drive, but this is by far the easiest: 1. Install the Operating System on your desktop or laptop computer using your bootable medium, such as CD/DVD or USB device. 2. Once the Operating System is completely installed, boot into it, and access the partition where you installed it. 3. Drag and drop all of the files in the system partition onto your external hard drive, and wait for them to fully transfer. 4. Now you can plug your external hard drive into any computer, and boot into that Operating System.
No. The PS3 operating system loads a specific driver at boot for the internal Blu-Ray drive. With a driver, the external drive will not work. because it is a simple Unix based operating system, there is no plug-n-play capability designed in the programming for an external Blu-Ray drive.
Disadvantages of an external hard drive
An external hard drive is an actual hard drive that connects to the computer through and USB port. And external backup drive can be a storage unit as to where files are uploaded.
if you want to know if you can go from internal hard drive to external hard drive, then the answer is yes. you can purchase an internal hard drive and external hard drive
The volume label of an external hard drive refers to the string, which shows before the drive letter if you were to look at the drive using My Computer. For instance, if it is written External Drive:E, then the label is External Drive.
In general, there is no reason to have more than one partition on an external hard drive. There are some specific cases where it might be desirable but you would know if you had a requirement like that.
Yes, you can have a different operating system on your external hard drive. Just make sure that you use E-SATA otherwise it will take significant amount of time to load. Unless you are using small operating systems designed to be loaded from external and slow source.
