I'm creative rather than technical so I apologise for requesting a replyin plain English. I need to edit a number of music videos on my laptop (Samsung R530 with Windows 7, 3GB RAM and 32-bit operating system). I am buying Adobe Premiere Elements 9 and have been advised to use a Firewire 800 or eSATA external hard-drive to speed up the streaming of footage. My laptop has neither port!
What can I do to make the video run smoothly as I edit and be free from stops and jerks? I do have USB ports. Please tell me I don't have to buy another laptop.
