Your Mac comes with a vast amount of hard disk space, but that doesn't mean that you should keep everything stored on it.
Some of the devices which are connected to computers via this standard are:
• external magnetic hard drives
• external optical drives, including CD and DVD reader and writer drives
• portable flash memory devices, particularly key drives
• adapters bridging between standard flash memory cards and a USB connection
• digital cameras
• digital audio players (iPod, audio, Creative Move series and other DAPs)
• high-end hardware media players
• Card Readers

If you want to store files on a CD or DVD, a FireWire or USB hard drive, a USB flash drive, or other removable storage media (like a Zip disk), here's how to connect each device to your Mac and access it.

CD DVD Burner:

While all current Apple computers come with a built-in CD burner, you may want to connect an external one if you need to make direct CD copies, or you may decide to get a DVD burner (if your computer has only a Combo Drive) if a bigger storage medium is desired.

USB External Drives:

If you use iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, or GarageBand even once a week, you've seen the free space on your hard drive shrink so much that another hard drive is on your Christmas list.

The USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Kit is compatible with 3.5" IDE hard disks, UDMA 33/66, ATA-100/133, or AT-6. It solves any space dilemma with only a small financial investment, especially if you have a spare hard drive handy. You can use it to augment your internal storage, as an emergency enclosure, or to provide back up storage.

Most of these types of devices don't require you to install software to use them. Check the documentation that came with your drive to be sure. Some can also draw power from your computer through the attached FireWire or USB cable, so they don't need a power adapter.

When you purchase an external hard drive kit and add your own hard disk, you often obtain high-capacity storage for less than the cost of a smaller external drive. An added bonus is that the easy assembly process is less disruptive than replacing your computer’s internal hard drive. When you buy a new computer, if you don't want to lose productivity, just place your old drive in the USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Kit, You won’t need to spend hours reinstalling software.

USB Flash Drives
These itty-bitty devices can fit in the palm of your hand, but can pack upwards of a gigabyte or more of data on them. Also known as USB thumb drives, these storage devices are handy for shuttling files from computer to computer. And they're incredibly simple to use: Just plug one in to any USB port on your Mac and the device should show up on your Desktop as a mounted volume icon.

Other Storage Devices
Zip drives, media card readers, tape drives, and other storage devices can also be easily connected to your Mac in the same manner as connecting a CD or DVD burner
If your storage device uses removable media, the icon that appears on your Desktop may take on the appearance of the media at hand.
