Manual wise you get two paper slips, one in english and one in Swedish explaining how to connect the devices. The driver cd is needed if you don’t run XP or Vista. Basic installation is to install all cables except the USB cable, set the harddrive to master, and then connect the usb cable. So basically you should connect the usb cable last otherwise it won’t recognize the devices connected to it.

You get a short little SATA cable and a mall power adapter for your devices.

Since it might be right around your harddrive, Eksitdata have developed a small IDE extender which you can connect between your harddrive and the device. The USB cable is around 1 meter long with a silver color. I believe that the cable is also shielded against various electronic disturbance.

The power adapter works all over the world, you will have to change the power cable though to fit your plugin.

I said earlier that the power adapter is compatible with 100-240V power lines and we can see the specifications if we look at the left picture.

On the right picture we got the device, which has a black casing and different connectors on the sides. On the top you have different leds that light up depending on the devices connected to it. The top led shows when the power cable is connected, then we got USB, IDE, and finally a SATA led. This helps you to figure out what devices you have connected to the drive without having to mess around with the cables.
