Important set up information and video

Enclosure and one of the power sources available for HDD operation



The USB 2.0 Travel Kit Enclosure has several power options. The image above shows the DC power connector being used.
Once the drivers (if necessary) are installedUsing the USB power at connection and one of the power sources is connected to the enclosure cap to the HDD, the drive must be initialized to properly function on your system.

Important Note: Until the HDD is initialized, it will not produce a drive icon in your Hard Disk Drive field of My Computer or Explorer but will be visible in your system Hardware Devices list under disk drives. For XP users, download this instructional video in .swf (Flash) format if you're unfamiliar with initializing a hard drive in XP. Your Flash plug-in should bring up the video automatically.

USB 2.0 2.5 inch travel kit enclosure testimonial


Enclosure Testimonial I'm very pleased with this enclosure. It is a perfect travel size for a portable backup or a portable bootable system drive. Admittedly I was a little confused with how the drive operated because I had never added a HDD to my laptop with Windows XP. Once I figured it out I was flying. The information above is very important to the drives operation on your system and I would suggest you read it and view the video so you understand what has to be done for proper functionality.

As I said, I was flying with this , there seems to be no noticeable difference in speed between this drive within a USB enclosure and an internal drive. The drive function from the My Computer window also functions just like any other drive on your system, storage, back-up, copy, paste, view, copy from, running programs and what ever else you would use a drive for.

I would definitely recommend the USB 2.0 2.5 inch Travel Kit Enclosure as an alternative to disassembling your current PC or laptop to add a drive.
