Effective data storage

Hi all,

I was wondering on what people are using (and finding most effective) for backing up audio data off a Mac

At the moment I'm still using CD's but the time factor is becoming ever more frustrating; was wondering what are most people using?

Does anyone know of a removable hard disk which can be mounted into the front of a quicksilver G4? If so that would probably be ideal.

My AIT3 is a god send. I usually still use the AIT2 tapes just for compatibility issues. It's fast, and I can back up very large amounts of data on a tape the size of a DA88 tape. If it's a project that's going to be worked on elsewhere, sadly, I burn Cd-rs. It's the most universal format out there. AIT3 in conjuction with Mezzo is perfect for anyone that has gotten burned using some other type of back up system (as long as you'll be the one using it).
