Internal SATA/USB DigiDrive

The internal SATA/USB DigiDrive is part of Addonics' advanced generation of internal Flash memory reader/writers. Designed to mount directly into a standard 3.5" drive bay, the internal SATA/USB DigiDrive connects to practically any flash memory media, including the latest SDHC and SDXC standards, on any system or equipment via a high speed SATA or USB interface. When connected to a SATA port, any flash media can be used as a bootable device with read/write speed of up to 150MB/sec.

The internal SATA/USB DigiDrive comes with upgradeable firmware to ensure compatibility with future Flash standards. There is also the choice of a READ only model, an ideal solution for forensic applications.

This feature is to make the media useable by certain software designed to work with removable media only. Using this firmware, the flash media can no longer be used for booting as most OS do not support booting from removable disk.
