The Diamond Drive Cartridge System DDCS is designed to enable any SATA or IDE hard drive to be used like a tape cartridge via the standard 5 1 4" drive bay on any computer
You can swap hard drives in and out of your computer without restarting your system. With an optional external power adapter, the DDCSIS can also be installed externally for different types of applications. Once the OS detects the presence of the DDCS enclosure cartridge , it appears as an additional hard drive to the system. There is no driver to install or special software required to do data backup or restoration. Data is stored uncompressed in its own native file format and can be accessed readily by any application program. br br Constructed in heavy gauge aluminum with precision finish for smooth operation, the DDCS is built to last while at the same time providing excellent heat dissipation for the hard drive. With the size slightly larger than a VCR cassette, the Diamond drive enclosure comes with both an eSATA and SATA connector. The eSATA connector allows the Diamond drive enclosure to be used as an external eSATA hard drive using a standard eSATA cable and an optional power adapter. The SATA connector allows the Diamond drive enclosure to be used as a removable cartridge in the Diamond drive cradle installed inside the 5 1 4" drive bay of any computer. The Diamond drive enclosure can also be attached to the USB port of any computer with an optional USB eSATA adapter. Comes built in with the Addonics SATA direct bridge interface, the Diamond drive enclosure allows the SATA or IDE hard drive to appear as a direct connection to the host both in eSATA or SATA mode while at the same time isolates the SATA hard drive power and data connectors from the wears and tears incurred in some of the removable SATA hard drive system. 2.5" SATA or IDE hard drive can also be installed into the Diamond drive enclosure using the optional 2.5" hard drive mounting bracket. br br The Diamond drive cradle, equipped with both standard 4P and SATA 15 pin power connectors, has integrated SATA connector for direct connection to SATA port oo any system. By attaching different IO converters, the Diamond drive cradle can also be interfaced to IDE, USB or SCSI port.
