FireWire (IEEE 1394a) to IDE (ATAPI) 5.25" enclosure with peer to peer (stand-alone) DVD/CD duplicator function

FWEIDE525-A1 is ideally suited for tailgate interface applications for removable-media drives CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW. It allows IDE drives (Master or Slave) to be connected to FireWire (IEEE 1394a) serial bus in a plug-and-play fashion.

FWEIDE525-A1 allows users to easily hot-swap IDE drive without interrupting the current operation. FWEIDE525-A1 provides the perfect solution for data backup and transfering of data between computers using IDE (ATAPI) devices. FWEIDE525-A1 provides peer to peer (stand-alone) DVD/CD duplicator function through FireWire (IEEE 1394a) serial bus connection.
