These pages will guide you through the process of connecting your LaCie product and will explain its features. If this manual doesn't answer your questions or if you are having trouble, consult the Getting Help page.


Box Content

Your box contains the following:

  • LaCie Rugged Hard Disk
  • USB 3.0 cable (USB 2.0-compatible)
  • FireWire 800 cable
  • Quick Install Guide

Note: A PDF of this User Manual and software utilities are pre-loaded on the drive.

Important info: Please save your packaging. In the event that the drive should need to be repaired or serviced, it must be returned in its original packaging.

Note: For optimal performance through the USB connection, the drive must be connected to a USB 3.0 host port. Many laptops or desktop computers do not feature USB 3.0 ports. You can purchase a USB 3.0 PCI Express Card (for desktop computers) or a USB 3.0 ExpressCard 34 (for laptops) that will permit the maximum transfer speeds for which your LaCie USB 3.0 hard drive is capable.
