The Toshiba Canvio® Aerocast™ Portable Hard Drive changes the way you use your portable storage device. The world’s first hard drive to be compatible with Google Chromecast (sold separately), the Canvio Aerocast Portable Hard Drive allows users to stream videos to a HDTV, save digital content from mobile devices, and archive photos from camera with its built-in SD card slot.
Watch your favourite movies wirelessly from the Canvio® Aerocast™ on the large screen. All you need to do is download Toshiba’s Google Cast Ready app (available free on Apple’s App store and Google Play store) to stream videos from the Canvio® AeroCast™ to a Chromecast connected to a HDTV.
Perfect for backing up all your photos and videos wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet, Canvio® Aerocast™ also allows you to share your entire digital library with family and friends through the device’s own local Wi-Fi® connection.
The device has a battery life of up to five hours1 and can connect simultaneously with up to six devices, making accessing and sharing files from the digital library easier than ever.

Digital photography enthusiasts now do not have to worry about running out of storage space. With the built-in SD card slot on the Canvio® Aerocast™ Portable Hard Drive, you can easily back up digital photos and videos from their SD or microSD cards (SD card adaptor required for microSD cards), directly to the Canvio® AeroCast™. What’s more, you would be able to view contents instantly via the mobile app.
In most cases, users will lose connection to their wireless router when their mobile device is connected to a wireless device, hence losing their Internet access. However, with the Canvio® Aerocast™’s Internet pass-through mode, users can simultaneously access the Wireless Hard Drive and the Internet.
