USB 3.1 (USB-C) cable

Use the USB-C cable to ensure maximum data transfer rates with compatible ports. Connecting your product is easy since the USB-C cable is identical on both ends. Further, the USB-C ports on your LaCie hard drive and computer are conveniently rounded to accept the cable end no matter how it is connected.
