  • Patent number: 9398093
    Abstract: A control method of a storage apparatus including a control module and a storage element is provided. In the method, the control module provides a first and a second data transmission interface and a control interface, in which the control module respectively establishes data connections with a first and a second electronic device. Then, the control module transmits a first data between the first electronic device and the storage element via the first data transmission interface. In transmitting the first data between the first electronic device and the storage element via the first data transmission interface by the control module, when receiving a transmission request for a second data in the storage element from the second data transmission interface, the control module provides the second data transmission interface for transmitting the second data after the transmission of the first data has been completed.

  • Publication number: 20140012943
    Abstract: A method and a storage apparatus for switching a data transmission path to transmit data are provided. The storage apparatus comprises a storage element, an interface connector, a connector control interface connected with the storage element and the interface connector, a wireless transmission module, and an apparatus controller connected with the storage element and the wireless transmission module. In the method, the apparatus controller receives a connection request from a remote apparatus by using the wireless transmission module, and accordingly transmits an inquiry message to the remote apparatus to ask whether to establish a wireless data transmission path. When a confirmation message returned from the remote apparatus is received, the apparatus controller closes the connector control interface and establishes a wireless data transmission path to provide the remote apparatus to access the data in the storage element.
