Xmultiple Technologies release FlashPoint Sharedrive USB flash memory
FlashPoint ShareDrives allows users to copy data stored in one flash memory to another. On top of this functionality, the new FlashPoint ShareDrives have an integrated female USB connector so users can plug a cable or another device into the same USB port in which the FlashPoint ShareDrive is attached, chaining devices.

The FlashPoint drive technology means that a user does not need a desktop, laptop or PDA to copy files while on the go. The FlashPoint ShareDrive has a folder called "Share", used to store files that can be copied to another FlashPoint ShareDrive or USB memory key device is attached.

The USB memory key can also be used to copy data from other devices, in a process called "dump". This is useful when copying data from a digital camera for example. The process is controlled by buttons for Power control, Load and Dump of data.

The device is powered by an internal battery, which allows it to be used to copy data from the shared folder without the need of external power. It works with Windows 98/Me/2000 and XP or Macintosh OS 9.x and 10.x.

An 8 bits 8051 compatible MCU core runs the show, with 64 KBytes of internal ROM for firmware and software. The connection to other devices is through USB 2.0 (full-speed). The FlashPoint Sharedrive comes in different memory configurations, from 256MB through 1GB.
