WD Passport Pocket Drives offer consumers one of the easiest ways to transport
large digital files-personal or business-and to share files between Mac® and PC
computers. They can be used with any computer having a USB port. Measuring 0.37
x 2.41 x 1.80 inches and housing a one-inch WD hard drive inside, the ultra-thin
WD Passport Pocket Drives feature a unique flip-out, rotating USB 2.0 connector
that allows use in tight spaces. The USB connector is thin enough that two
drives can be used at the same time in the tightly spaced USB ports found on
notebook computers.

WD Passport Pocket Drives are powered by the computer so a separate power supply
is not needed. An activity light on the drive glows when the drive is connected
and flashes when the drive is storing data.

"Digital content, in many forms, is integral to our business and personal
lives," said Jim Welsh, vice president and general manager of WD’s Branded
Products group. "People want a portable storage solution for their digital
library that requires the least effort and gives them peace of mind. WD Passport
Pocket Drives offer huge capacity in a tiny package for the ultimate in
plug-n-go storage. And like all WD drives, high quality is built in."

WD Passport Pocket Drives are available at storefront and online retailers, and
via the company’s online store (www.westerndigital.com). Estimated pricing for
the WD Passport Pocket Drive 6 GB capacity is $ 129 USD. A product specification
