FireWire Depot on Thursday released its new
Dual Drive FireWire 800/USB 2.0 Internal Converter, which makes two ATA/ATAPI drives FireWire 800, FireWire 400 or USB 2.0 compatible. In addition, it eliminates the 120GB per-drive size limit and improves system speed through the use of only one IRQ slot for up to 63 daisy-chained devices. Pricing is US$120 and it comes with an 18-inch IDE cable, a Y-shape DC power cable and an installation guide. Any version of Mac OS X that recognizes USB 2.0 and FireWire 400/800 is supported.
