I may have some dumb questions here so please ignore my stupidity.

Looking to buy the 40G with DVD recorder.
1) I am assuming that this is just a DVD recorder and therefore can not copy data files from my laptop onto a DVD?

2) TIVO has 2 USB ports. I am planning on adding TIVO to my wireless network with a USB adapter. For the other port, can I hook up a USB external Hard drive and have it be seen on my laptop as a network drive? (I hate plugging in the external HD into my laptop since I move it all around and I don't have a permanent computer desk.)

Thanks for bearing with me.

1: Correct. It can only burn content it recorded from its A/V or RFinputs.

2: no. USB only supports networking.

If you want a bunch of externa storage, and wish to remain portable, you need a network drive.
