ADS Announces USB 2.0 Mini Drive Kit

ADS Tech announced Tuesday its plug-and-play Mini Drive Kit for the Macintosh.

The Mini Drive Kit lets Mac users take external hard drives and turn them into an enclosed, portable device with USB 2.0 connections.

The kit accepts any IDE Ultra DMA 33/66 or ATA-100/133 hard disk drive into a ADS Tech Native Bridge Board, which is inside the drive kitis enclosure.

Similar in style and size to the Mac mini case, the stackable ADS Techis Mini Drive Kit is 6.5 inches square and less than two inches high, the company said.

The Mini Drive Kit is priced at US$59 and includes the USB 2.0 Drive Enclosure, a 9-inch USB white cable, a 5-inch USB white cable, a 5-volt/12-volt power supply and a Macintosh utilities CD.
