Pocket eSATA/USB DigiDrive

The Pocket eSATA/USB DigiDrive is Addonics advanced generations of Flash memory reader/writer. Comes in the size of a portable floppy drive, the Pocket eSATA/USB DigiDrive connects practically any flash memory media, including the latest SDHC and SDXC standards, to any computer or equipment via either high speed eSATA or the ubiquitous USB interface. When connected to eSATA port, any flash media can be used as bootable device with read/write speed up to 150MB/sec.

Unlike most low cost flash card readers in the market, the Pocket eSATA/USB DigiDrive comes with upgradeable firmware to ensure compatibility with future new Flash standard. There is also choice of a READ only model, an ideal solution for the forensic application.

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.
