Chapter 1. System / Boot Requirements
System / Boot Requirements
System Requirements
■ A host system that can support USB 1.1/2.0/3.x interfaces.
(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. Refer to the next page, please use the boot from the virtual USB drive functions.

AES256BIT-XTS Encryption
AES256bit-xts is the best existing encryption algorithm that using not only US
Department of Defense and but also leading companies in the world. 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.

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.

Caution
■ If you forget the password, there is no way to find it. Half of the keys are in your memory.
IODD encryption algorithm does not store the password in IODD body.
■ Did you set the encryption by mistake?, If the disk has been not written after encryption,
then the data of the disk can be restored.Select [Remove Encryption] menu will remove
the encryption.Reconnect the IODD to a PC. This is likely to be the old data has been restored.
But, The reverse is not possible.
Encrypted HDD (old data)-> Remove Encryption-> set encryption -> Old data recovery is impossible
■ Changing password with maintaining the HDD data is not possible. Backing up data (old data) and
Remove Encryption Run -> a new password Set Encryption -> The data (old data) to be copied again.
