I'm wondering what the difference between SCSI and IDE are?
Things I've heard so far:
1. SCSI allows you to chain 16 or so devices, while IDE only allows two per plug.
2. IDE is a ##### of a lot cheaper
3. SCSI is able to operate independently of the processor
I'm trying to do some research for a friend who is getting a video surveillance system installed. The system only stores images for 5 days, but she wants to be able to burn (cd or dvd) the images and keep them indefinitely. The system salesperson didn't know how to burn the images, but told her that she'd need SCSI to do it.
Is SCSI that much faster at burning large files?
I'm afraid I'm not much use to offer her advice since I don't know anything about SCSI drives (and only a very little about IDE).
