INTRODUCTION
Congratulations and thank you for purchasing the Hi-Speed USB 2.0
& FireWire External Drive Enclosure Kit from Belkin. Your new Drive
Enclosure incorporates the amazing speed and flexibility of both the
Hi-Speed USB 2.0 (Universal Serial Bus 2.0) and IEEE 1394a (FireWire)
interfaces in one compact storage device. Featuring the easy flexibility
of Plug-and-Play technology, the Drive Enclosure can be disconnected
and reconnected while your computer is running, providing a fast,
simple way to add portable storage space through either a USB or
FireWire port. These ease-of-use advantages, along with its compact
size, make it an ideal tool for the computer user on the road.
Note: To enable Hi-Speed USB 2.0 mode (480Mbps), your computer
must be equipped with built-in Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports or a Hi-Speed
USB 2.0 host adapter card.
