About the UltraBlock USB 3.0 IDE-SATA (Read/Write)

Product Code: AP-DI-W2760

The Read Write UltraBlock USB 3.0 IDE-SATA (USB 2.0 compatible) is used to write data to an IDE or SATA hard drive. The USB 3.0 family of portable forensic bridges offer faster imaging speeds, reliable performance, and an easy to use USB 3.0 host computer connection. We offer an UltraBlock USB 3.0 IDE/SATA pre-configured for read/write operation. It’s available in a yellow case so that you can easily distinguish a pre-configured read/write device from a read-only device. It offers forensic examiners the ease of use, reliability, and imaging speed necessary to image today’s larger and faster hard-disk drives – in both lab or field environments. With the advent of USB 3.0, the clutter of multiple host connections has been replaced by a single Super Speed USB 3.0 port. You’ll now be powered by the performance potential of USB 3.0. Still just as easy to use as ever; simply connect, power up, and image. For added security, the UltraBlock USB 3.0 device introduces the new ‘Firmware Update’ button, which places the unit in a special mode for updating its firmware through the Tableau Firmware Update (TFU) utility. TFU has been rewritten for updates via USB, making it easier than ever to maintain the correct version of firmware on new Tableau products. If desired, the user can configure the device for either Read-Only or Read-Write operation through the use of internal dip switches. (An LED is provided on the case to confirm when the unit is configured in Read-Only Mode).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

PC Interface: One USB 3.0 Type B (9- pin, super/ high/full/low speed)
Drive Interfaces: SATA Signal Connector, IDE signal Connector
User Configurable: Read-Only or Read-Write via DIP switch

Versatile Operation In Write Protect mode, the UltraBlock will prevent ANY and ALL writes from reaching the attached device. It is compatible with all Windows 98se, Windows ME, Windows 2K/XP, and any O/S that supports IEEE 1394 and has a compliant card and drivers. In Read/Write mode (non-Write Protected), it can be used to attach a drive to be used for receiving images on your USB3 chain. The UltraBlock is shipped by default in a Read-Write (no write blocking) configuration. However, it can be configured to enable Read-Only operation as well. a2

SWITCH 1 OFF = Read Only (write blocking enabled) ON = Read/Write

SWITCH 2 OFF = Unit reports errors if writes are attempted ON = Unit suppresses errors if writes are attempted

SWITCH 3 OFF = Unit reports Write-Protect (WP) status in code page ON = Unit supresses Write-Protect (WP) status in code page

SWITCH 4 Reserved


The UltraBlock Power Supply may only be used to power one UltraBlock and one Hard Drive. Do not attempt to use a single external power supply to power more than one UltraBlock and Hard Drive.

Additional USB 3.0 Cables are available from Digital Intelligence as required for your application.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
