Cables and Connectors

USB 2.0

USB is a serial input/output technology for connecting peripheral devices to a computer or to each other. Hi-Speed USB 2.0 is the second-to-latest implementation of this standard, and it provides the necessary bandwidth and data transfer rates to support high speed devices such as hard drives, CD/DVD drives and digital cameras.

Your LaCie product is shipped with a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 cable to ensure maximum data transfer performance when connected to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port. The cable will also work when connected to a USB 1.1 port, but performance will be limited to USB 1.1 transfer rates.

FireWire 400

FireWire 400, also known as IEEE 1394, is specifically aimed at multimedia peripherals such as digital video camcorders, CD-RW drives, DVD drives and hard drives.

FireWire is also a point-to-point interface, meaning that a FireWire device can transmit data to another FireWire device without having to go through a computer. This lets several computers share a given device, and also allows up to 63 devices to be daisy-chained to the same FireWire bus (with a max of 16 devices on one branch).

FireWire 400 to 800 Adapter Cable

FireWire 800 is backwards compatible with FireWire 400, so if you have this adapter cable, you can connect your LaCie FireWire 400 product to a FireWire 800 port on your computer. In this case, file transfers will be limited to FireWire 400 speeds. If your product does not include an adapter cable in the package, you can purchase one from www.lacie.com/accessories/.
