    External Harddrive. 2 USB cables?

    I had this 'Hitachi' external hard drive for a while now and used it for some time as well. The thing is, there are two usb cables attached to my hard drive. There's a Red one and a Black one. I know that the red one is for transferring data coz thats what i use but the black one i got know idea... I checked if it could transfer data but nothing happened when i plugged the black one in the comps usb port. I lost the booklet thingy so yeh. My friends are clueless coz theirs only have one cable.
    Does anyone have any idea what this second usb cable is for?
