Use Firewire to connect new drives to older systems

Another jewel from Rich.

Most of the big external drives we run are in combo boxes that can run either USB 2 or F/wire to allow for connecting to a variety of machines. We do that with a few outboard DVD drives too that attach to the older systems when needed.
Making Karaoke the best it can be!
