SmartDisk's FlashPath� to Support Windows 2000
Driver Software to Be Available on Company's Web Site
Naples, Fla. -- March 14, 2000 -- - SmartDisk Corporation (Nasdaq: SMDK), a company whose products simplify the digital lifestyle, announced today that support for Windows 2000 is being integrated into its FlashPath floppy disk adapter for digital appliances. This extends FlashPath's operating system support to business users who are moving to Windows 2000 because of its compatibility with existing and emerging hardware devices.
"Windows 2000 business users are increasingly reliant upon the Internet for e-commerce, communications and multimedia business applications," said Quresh Sachee, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for SmartDisk. "As a result, there is a corresponding increase in demand for hardware devices, such as digital cameras, scanners, music players, and voice recorders that work seamlessly with desktop PCs and notebook computers. FlashPath's patented floppy disk-sized format makes it easy for Windows 2000 users to transfer data from their digital appliances to PCs, notebooks and the Internet. FlashPath's portable size and lack of cables and connectors also make it the ideal flash memory reader for workers both in the office and on the road."
A beta version of the FlashPath for SmartMedia Windows 2000 driver can now be downloaded from SmartDisk's Web site (www.smartdisk.com), with general availability planned for the end of March 2000. Additionally, future releases of Windows 2000 driver support for Sony's Memory Stick and SanDisk's MultiMediaCard are planned.
