Rating:

9 Penguins out of a possible 10

Summary: -- The combination of Rapport and the Drive 2.4 provides read/write compatibility with most 3.5" disk formats as well as several special formats, such as 2.4 MB Mac HFS disks. Kennect's implementation is clean and unobtrusive and the combination worked flawlessly for me. As an extra bonus, the Drive 2.4 is bundled with FastBack II from Fifth Generation Systems.
