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.

USB-Y Cable

In the event that the USB bus on your computer does not provide the necessary power to operate your mobile LaCie hard disk, you can connect a USB-Y cable to the drive and to your computer's USB 2.0 ports to ensure adequate power. If a USB-Y cable is not included in the packaging, you can purchase one from www.lacie.com/accessories/.
