Default firewire drives without oxford 911

Hey all,

I've been looking at getting another external firewire drive to use strictly for backup. I've been recording to a 120GB maxtor drive with oxford 911 chipset. There are some Western digital 500GB firewire drives on eBay, but it's not specified whether or not they contain the oxford 911 chip, which I gather is recommended for use with Pro Tools. However, since I would not be recording directly to the WD drive, would it be passable? Thanks in advance,

C

If you are not recording directly to the drive, then any drive will work. All you are doing is copying files from one drive to another, and a possible brief interruption of data flow will not ruin anything.
