Hard Drive Mounting Process

USB2.0 + IEEE 1394 combo enclosure Brackets Using the mounting brackets included in the USB2.0 + IEEE 1394 Mass Storage combo enclosure locate the mounting holes on the bottom (circuit side) of your hard drive. Install the brackets with the supplied mounting screws as shown here to the left. Please refer to the user's manual for clarification. The Screws do not have to be torqued down, just more than finger tight is sufficient. Remember to use proper ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) precautions when working with electronics. Once the brackets are secured to the hard drive, you're ready to install it into the enclosure.
Opening the USB 2.0 ieee 1394 combo enclosure To remove the top cover of the USB2.0 IEEE 1394 combo enclosure you'll need to remove 4 screws. The 1st and 2nd screws located on either side of the enclosure closest to the face plate must be removed, these screws are recessed below the enclosure surface, the 3rd and 4th screws are located in the back near the fan and ports for the USB cable and the firewire cables. Although there are 4 screws in the back of the enclosure, only the top 2 need be removed leaving the bottom for mounting  the hard drive. The user's manual shows the screw locations and disassembly of the enclosure.
Mounting the HDD into the usb2.0 1394 combo enclosure To properly seat the hard drive into the USB2.0 IEEE 1394 combo enclosure you'll need to slide the front plate out and back, this will allow you to make the data cable and power connections with minimal interference.

Make your data cable and power connections to the hard drive. Once connected, slide the hard drive into place by lining up the mounting holes in the brackets attached to the hard drive with the mounting holes in the USB2.0 IEEE 1394 combo enclosure. Screw the supplied screws into the enclosure taking care not to over tighten and strip the mounting holes.

Once the hard drive is secured into place, the front plate of the USB2.0 IEEE 1394 combo enclosure can be replaced to start reassembling the enclosure. Please see the user's manual for further instructions.

USB2.0 + 1394 Firewire 3.5 inch Combo Enclosure Testimonial

I liked the feel of this enclosure, it is extremely light weight and easy to work with. Installing the hard drive was basically a two step process where you attach the mounting brackets to the hard drive first, then the hard drive with the brackets to the USB2.0 + 1394 mass storage combo enclosure. Once the hard drive was mounted into the enclosure it was pretty simple to reassemble the enclosure so I could use it with the computer. I tried both the USB2.0 and the IEEE 1394 connections, both operated equally as well and equally as fast. Copying a gig or two of data literally only took about 2 minutes to complete and access time to the copied file on the drive where the same as access my local drive.

I think you can really come to new terms with mass storage using the USB2.0 + 1394 mass storage combo enclosure. It allows you to have maximum mobility and storage on demand whether it's in your office, home

Recommended as a superb Mass Storage Solution for Designers, IT and Multimedia Professionals, and the personal computer user.
