I'm in the process of re-ripping my music collection into AIFF files (they were in mp3 before). Obviously, now, the files take up much more space and my laptop is only 500gb internal and I need much more. I'm thinking about buying a 2tb external HDD. This would connect to my laptop via USB 2.0 (because my laptop does not have any USB 3.0 slots). I have 2x CDJ-2000, and a DJM-900.
Firstly, when I connect the decks to the laptop via link (using rekordbox) as usual will the fact that all my music will be being read off an external HDD cause any problems?
Secondly, would buying a HDD enclosure and internal HDD separately, and making an external HDD myself be a better/cheaper option?
Thanks for your responses in advance.
