The RHCIL (hereafter "the unit") is an IEEE 1394a-2000 interface adaptor for the
Portable HardDisk Media. By connecting the unit, you can easily use the Portable
HardDisk Media as an external storage device. The unit is an IEEE 1394 device, so it is
possible to use it with the Windows or Macintosh default device driver (Plug and Play).
Because IEEE 1394a is SPB-2-compliant, you can achieve a maximum 400 Mbps data
transfer rate with the unit. Also, the Portable HardDisk Media is FAT32-formatted, which
means that you can easily share Windows and Macintosh data.
