USB and Bus Power

The included USB cable is a "Y" cable: one end connects to the drive and two ends can be connected to the computer. In some situations, a single USB port will not supply enough USB bus power for the PortaGig 50, and two computer USB ports are needed. Due to differing bus power specs, the safest choice is to use the PortaGig 50 with the included DC power supply. Additionally, the DC power supply should be used with PortaGig 50 in capacities of 250GB or higher.
