Western Digital Introduces 60 GB External Drive


Revolutionary External Drive Brings Easy-to-add and Secured Storage Benefits to PC and Macintosh Users in the Middle East



Dubai, United Arab Emirates


To provide PC and Mac users in the Middle East with a reliable, secure, and real-time transfer of digital video and audio data to personal computers and laptops, Western Digital – a world leader in personal computing storage – today announced the availability of its new 60 GB FireWire external hard disk drive.


The automatically configured FireWire external hard drive offers personal computing storage with fast, plug-and-play, hot-swap connectivity to high-speed devices such as, digital cameras, digital video camcorders, and scanners.


“With the availability of data-rich applications on the Internet and the increased use of digital cameras and camcorders, demand on large storage capacity will dramatically increase,” said Rauf Baig, Western Digital sales manager in the Middle East.


“The number of digital photography users in the Middle East is increasing rapidly. Accordingly, Western Digital has developed the FireWire external drive to provide users with additional and easy-to-use storage for their need to store huge amounts of data, such as movies, live news broadcasts, HTML web pages, and large-size digital photos,” added Baig.


The new external drive includes full-featured digital video editing software and provides a complete solution for Internet downloads, music files, video files, and data files.


The FireWire external drive is compatible with Macintosh and Windows-based personal computers via a built-in port or a FireWire adapter. The external drive can be used under Windows 98 SE or Mac OS 8.6, or higher operating systems.
