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 3.0 or 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/.
