I installed Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) on my PC and now my G-RAID (Legacy) is running slowly. What can I do to regain performance?
SP2 limits the performance of all FireWire devices (We don't get that one either...). In order to get your G-RAID to operate optimally with SP2 we have updated the firmware to overcome this issue. Click here for instructions on updating G-RAIDs firmware.

ONLY install this is update if your G-RAID serial number (located on the bottom of the unit) falls within
106010001-111010001 - newer units already include this update

What is Thunderbolt?
Thunderbolt in an input/output hardware interface, developed by Intel in cooperation with Apple, which allows for external devices to be connected to a computer. Thunderbolt combines PCI Express and DisplayPort, as well as a DC connector for power, in a single connection, passing through a single Thunderbolt cable. You can daisy chain up to 6 peripherals, like storage devices and monitors. You can also connect USB and FireWire devices to the Thunderbolt port, provided that you have the proper adapter, but the speed you will get will still be USB or FireWire speeds, depending on what device you are connecting.  ...
