(USB 1.x does not support multi-device connections.) ■ A system that can boot via USB-CDROM/USB-HDD from the BIOS. IODD emulates a USB-CDROM and HDD virtually. If your PC does not support the physical USB-CDROM / HDD boot, IODD does not support boot functions. ■ A system with a USB port capable of holding voltages over 4.75V with a maximum current of 900mA. ■ A HDD that is less than 9.5 mm thick and has a SATA interface. Boot Requirements ■ When booting through the USB-CDROM, always use a bootable ISO file. ■ When booting through the USB-CDROM, the OS installation (ISO) must include the USB host driver for the PC. ※ In the case of Intel Chipset Skylake, Windows 7 Installation CD does not include that driver. you may experience an error when installing Windows 7. If so, refer to the following page, install a virtual USB drive. [ Create a Bootable virtual USB thumb drive using the Rufus] ■ When booting through the USB-HDD / virtual Flash memory, always use a bootable VHD(RMD) file. ■ The USB device must be enabled in boot priority list of BIOS. Cautions ■ Note: If your PC is unable to boot from USB device, contact your PC manufacturer for assistance. Make sure your PC supports "USB booting." ■ For the latest Sky Lake (Skylake) board and some boards may not support external USB-CDROM boot.

Check Basic Operations Check Basic Operations ■ Before use, check the basic operation mode. 2541 Check Basic Operations ■ Make sure that the touch screen is working properly. If the touch screen is not working properly, it may be due to the low electrical current of the USB port the device is connected to. ■ Check the cable for defectiveness. Make sure that the power is on and that both, USB 3.0 and 2.0, are recognized. If they are not working properly, it may be due to a simple defective cable. IODD uses the USB 3.0 Micro-B type cable. ■ Please check the LED and LCD. Does the backlight turned on properly? Does the screen is clear? Because the LCD blink every time you press the button on the touch IODD 2541? If so, good product. ■ Press&hold key "3" for 2 seconds to reconnect the USB. Press&hold key "1" for 2 seconds to safely remove the USB. Safe removal of the USB may not work when files on the HDD are in us. 2531 Check Basic Operations ■ Check the jog button and back / up button. Keeping jog up / down / press / press &hold and open menu, If the delay is caused in the operation likely to be delayed due to a HDD read error. If so, please check by removing the HDD or services received after the HDD manufacturer. ■ Check the cable for defectiveness. Make sure that the power is on and that both, USB 3.0 and 2.0, are recognized. If they are not working properly, it may be due to a simple defective cable. IODD uses the USB 3.0 Micro-B type cable. ■ Please check the LED and LCD. Does the backlight turned on properly? Does the screen is clear? If so, good product. IODD Manual 19 Chapter 1.

AES256 Encryption Introduction 2541 AES256 Encryption Introduction SECURE IODD -no one can access. read your contents on your absolutely secured HDD.

Nobody can read the hard disk drive without passwords. Fast and convenient A program or utility is not required for using the encrypted HDD.If you only enter a password when PC is connected, you can use the same as using a regular HDD. Of course, the HDD access speed is not slow. The safest key. It is your memory Half of keys are in hard drive and other half in your memory. IODD cannot be read except owner.HDD encoding, now it is not optional but essential. do not worry about enclosure defect because the half of key is stored in hard disk drive, you don't lose your passwords if you change the product. On the other hands, because products of other companies store the half of keys in the circuit memory, you have to visit service center and identify the user when you need follow-up service. IODD are compatible to each other IODD-2541 and SECURE DOCK (IODD-3544) can be used by same PIN. IODD Manual 22 Chapter 2. FAQ about Encryption FAQ about Encryption Q. If i set or reset password, is the data of HDD preserved? A. No, it is all destroyed. Q. Can i change many HDDs with diffent encryption PIN with one IODD-2541 ? A. Yes you can. No limit. Q. It can be used as it is in IODD a hard disk that has been used by third-party encryption external hard case? Also what about the reverse? A. No, it cannot. and vice versa. Q. I don’t remember my PIN. But can i reset and use the drive without encryption? A.HDD data all lost! 1. Connect HDD to PC directly. Initialize the HDD with GPT. 2. And again, 3. Initialize the HDD with MBR. Q. I want to change the password. A. You can’t change instantly your PIN. Therefore you must backup your data before change your PIN. 1. backup your data 2. remove encryption PIN. 3. set encryption PIN.
