Protection SD/microSD memory cards. By recording data in a CD-ROM style
partition, Copy Protection SD/microSD cards are designed to ensure the safety
of valuable intellectual property against unauthorized copy, modification and

The company said preloading
memory cards at the point of manufacture helps ensure data cannot be copied or
deleted, removing the effect of sophisticated cracking tools and even
reformatting. Moreover, the inability to write new data offers an extra level
of security against a loaded virus, which may destroy files and spread
infection to other computers. For added reliability and security, Transcend’s
Copy Protection SD/microSD cards have been comprehensively tested for
compatibility with most platforms, regardless of the host device software and
hardware settings.

In addition, Copy Protection
SD/microSD cards can be adapted to provide partially protected and partially
free areas, allowing users to save and modify files in the free space as per a
normal memory card. Copy Protection SD cards are available by request in 2GB to
64GB capacities, and Copy Protection microSD cards are available by request in
2GB to 16GB capacities. All are backed by Transcend’s limited lifetime

In December, the company
announced the launch of its StoreJet Cloud Wireless Portable Drive. Featuring
small dimensions, long-lasting battery, and capacity of up to 64GB, the
portable StoreJet Cloud can extend the storage space available on Apple iOS and
other WiFi-enabled devices. Photos, documents, eBooks, music and movies are
accessed via a dedicated wireless network.

StoreJet Cloud offers
support to the capacity limitations of mobile devices and presents an
alternative to the coverage demands of Internet storage. By physically storing
media with flash-based technology, StoreJet Cloud can provide a further 28
hours of DVD-quality movies or 16,000 songs in a small and lightweight design,
as well as skip-free playback in an instant. When connected to a computer,
StoreJet Cloud acts like any other portable drive: Users drag and drop files
from the computer into personalized folders for file management.

The StoreJet Cloud
application, an all-in-one media player for use with iOS devices such as the
iPad, iPhone and iPod, automatically lists portable drive contents for file
navigation with several playback modes available. The application also offers
users the ability to multitask by bridging a connection between StoreJet Cloud
and an external WiFi access point simultaneously. Function menus to wirelessly
transfer, delete or email files are also available from within the application
in addition to enabling security settings and upgrading firmware. Accessing
media on StoreJet Cloud is extended to other tablet and smartphone users by the
use of a Web browser.
