CardBus S-ATA Controller - Notebook goes S-ATA
Are you tired of the poor performance of USB 2.0 or FireWire 400? Maybe FireWire 800? Why not try a combination you would not have thought of...
NEC ND-6500 - Slim ATAPI DVD Writer

Archos ARCDisk40 - 40GB 1.8" External Harddisk

I would go for speed if I had the choice.
