Posted on Monday, January 12 2004 @ 16:53:22 CET by

Last week Western Digital released a new external hard disk drive, the Media Center hard disk combines a 205GB hard drive with a 8-in-1 card reader, USB 2.0 Hub and a flexible push-button backup feature.

Also released was a new external USB 2.0/FireWire hard disk, with dual option backup. This one is available in 120,160,200 and 250GB capacities.
Western Digital's exclusive Dual-option Backup system gives consumers the option to back up data either automatically or on-demand with the simple touch of a button. Using an easy set-up wizard, users can schedule a recurring backup; a button glows blue to confirm that files will be backed up automatically. The Media Center and new external drives with Dual-option Backup are also capable of backing up data from multiple sources for consumers who have a number of drives and/or PCs and notebooks.

Western Digital's Media Center and new external hard drives feature: a built-in USB 2.0 hub with a USB 2.0 port on front for easy connection of peripherals; 2 FireWire ports; Dantz Retrospect Express software; easy set-up wizard to schedule automatic data backup; extra data protection with Safe Shutdown; front-mounted power switch; elegantly designed, heat-dissipating case; and Kensington security lock connection. The Media Center and new external hard drives are designed with award-winning WD Caviar SE hard drives. Western Digital's Media Center will initially be available in capacities of 160, 200 and 250 GB.

Combining external storage with a built-in card reader for space-saving convenience and easier downloading at the touch of a button, the Media Center is compatible with 8 major media card formats, including CompactFlash Type I and II, IBM Microdrive, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, MultiMedia Card and SD Card.
