Memorex Bundles NTI's FileCD 2.0 Software With Pocket 8cm and Full-Size CD-RW Media
TUSTIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 30, 2001--Memorex and NewTech Infosystems (NTI)
have announced that Memorex will bundle NTI's FileCD 2.0 high-performance packet-writing
software with its 8cm Pocket and full-size CD-RW media.
With FileCD 2.0, storing data on high-capacity CD-RW media is as quick,
easy and affordable as copying to a floppy disk. Memorex will bundle FileCD 2.0 on its
10-spindle 8cm Pocket, and 5-pack, 10-pack and 25-spindle full-size CD-RW media.
Each of these configurations includes a bonus CD containing NTI FileCD 2.0 for installation
on the user's computer.
"We are witnessing the replacement of the floppy/Zip by CD-RW technology.
Users are demanding high-capacity removable storage that is as convenient and easy
to use as a floppy -- and they don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it,''
said Bill Yao, president and CEO of NTI. "Bundled with NTI FileCD 2.0 software,
Pocket CD-RW is the perfect high-capacity replacement for floppy or Zip storage."
"Pocket CD-RW media is smaller than a floppy diskette, but it contains over 160MB of
formatted storage -- well over 100 times as much as a floppy,'' said Michael Golacinski, president of Memorex. "It is durable
and cost-effective, can be rewritten over and over, and is compatible with virtually any
CD-ROM drive. Because of these powerful attributes, we expect significant growth in
the 8cm Pocket CD-RW segment over the next year. For users requiring even more storage,
our full-size CD-RW media stores over 500MB of formatted data, and its cost per MB
is better than either floppy or Zip.''
NTI FileCD 2.0 features:
FileCD 2.0 sports an intuitive user interface and makes storing data on a CD as easy as
storing it on a floppy. It provides the option of copying or moving files to a CD via the
Windows ``Send To'' function -- or "dragging-and-dropping'' from Windows Explorer or the
FileCD window. FileCD 2.0 features include fast "Full Format'' and "Erase,'' as well as File "Delete,'' "Rename'' and "Copy.''
FileCD 2.0 offers reliable support for UDF 1.5 (the emerging standard for optical media), as well as cross-platform ISO formats.
In either format, FileCD operates reliably in Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP environments.
