To access the data in your hard drive, you will need to connect it to your computer. Otherwise, you won’t be able to get to the digital files. There are many different connection types. Which connection types are legacy versions? In this video, Kevin Ames goes over what the legacy hard drive to connection types are.
- For clarity, I'd like to cover…a few of the legacy connections…that still are in use in some places and on some machines.…A lot of laptops only have USB 2.0 connectivity,…so let's take a look at what those speeds look like.…USB, or universal serial bus, has two legacy versions,…1.1, which was designed originally…for connecting keyboards and mice to computers,…has 12 megabits per second,…so not very much data transfer at all.…
USB 2.0 like this particular hard drive right here…has a USB 2.0 connection, shown by this mini-USB connector,…which has a respectable transfer rate…of up to 480 megabits per second.…So, this is old technology…that you'll find in a lot of older machines.…Over here, you see a FireWire 400,…which has a very similar data transfer.…These have gone out years and years ago,…but there's still machines and drives…that use these enclosures.…
The next one that we want to talk about is FireWire.…FireWire has become the most common standard…for connecting drives to a Mac.…The version I just showed you is FireWire 400.…
