USB flash drive duplicators are available as standalone and "PC connected". A standalone USB duplicator eliminates the need for a PC or software and provides a much faster interface then a PC connect USB duplicator. In fact the standalone USB duplicator runs at about 33MB a second per dedicated channel although actual USB drive copying speed depends on the type of drive. Asynchronous copy allows each channel to function independently and copies directly from 128MB of built-in memory so there is no need to start and end a copy cycle at the same time. Additionally a Source Analysis feature identifies the content on the master and logically copies only the data to speed up the copy cycle.Read More

USB drives have become mainstream in a very short time with the decrease in NAND flash pricing. The race for space has zoomed from 32MB drive capacity up to 128GB for USB drives: at this time. That is 128 Gigabyte (GB) = 131,072 MB. Even if that does not mean anything to you the fact that you can now store that much data on a USB flash drive is amazing. We are talking 4096 of those old 32 MB flash drives.
A USB flash drive consists of a connector which is what we plug into our laptops or computers, the actual memory chip(s) and strangely enough a microprocessor to manage the memory. The microprocessor makes the whole device unique as it can self-repair itself by identifying bad sectors. A small circuit board and some kind of external case to protect the electronics completes the package. Instead of a dumb memory thing being plugged in it's a computer in itself. The wide availability of USB slots make this type of storage the most compatible removable storage available today. Memory cards work fine too as long as you have a reader for the card. USB just plugs in to the ubiquitous USB port.Read More
