LaCie ( says it’s introducing industry-leading performance to Mac users with the availability of a USB 3.0 driver for Mac OS X. The driver brings the fast speeds of LaCie’s USB 3.0 hard drives to Mac computers and laptops — delivering transfer rates that are up to two times faster than FireWire 800, the company claims.

By downloading LaCie’s USB 3.0 driver for the Mac, and using it in conjunction with LaCie’s USB 3.0 expansion cards, Mac users can experience USB 3.0 speeds. Simply Check your compatibility with USB 3.0, install the peripherals, and download the driver.

Apparently, you’ll need a Mac Pro with a PCI Express card or a MacBook Pro with an ExpressCard/34 to use the expansion cards. If you already have one of LaCie’s USB 3.0 products and a LaCie expansion card, visit to download the driver, get more information, or check your Mac’s compatibility.
