Why 2 firewire port and only 1 USB


Recommended Posts

On External hard drives... How come there's 1 USB port and 2 firewire ports at the back of it. I own Maxtor One Touch and some decent low end hard drive enclosure and I see just the same available ports.

Out of curiosity, I tried hooking up 2 firewire cables to a PC --No effect. Hooked up 2 cables on two different PCs, still no effect.

Could somebody tell me what are they for? Who would benefit on this? Please. answer this question that I have been googling for months and still not get any idea. Thanks.
