Allows use of LaCie USB 3.0

Storage maker LaCie has released a new Mac USB 3.0 driver. As no Mac ships with a USB 3.0-ready port by default, the driver can only support accessories on a Mac Pro equipped a LaCie PCI Express adapter, or a MacBook Pro with the company's ExpressCard/34 adapter. In either case, Mac OS X 10.5 is required.

LaCie is claiming speeds of up to 130MBps for single hard drives, and 220MBps for dual hard drives. Several models are so far compatible. These include the Minimus, as well as USB 3.0 versions of the 2big, d2, Rugged and Rikiki.
