Create USB CD-ROM Flash Drives with Nexcopy Disc License Drives

Lake Forest, CA – July 19, 2021 – Nexcopy Inc., a leading manufacturer of advanced flash memory solutions, introduces Disc License CD-ROM flash drives.

Disc License flash drives provide a migration path for those who depend on optical media such as CD and DVD but can no longer offer the product because optical drives are nearly gone in standard laptop and desktop computers.

The Disc License product is a USB flash drive which appears as a CD-ROM device when connected to a host computer. This is a hardware solution which emulates a CD-ROM and is read-only (write protected) meaning data on the drive cannot be changed, manipulated, deleted or formatted off the drive. This is the best method to create a USB CD-ROM flash drive.

“Think of a Disc License drive as a blank CD or DVD,” states Greg Morris, President of Nexcopy. “The blank CD-ROM will have the capacity of whatever the Gigabyte capacity the customer orders. Simply point our software to any ISO file and the data will be written with the resultant drive being that of a CD-ROM.”

Morris continues, “What is so elegant about this solution is being able to re-write an ISO file to the device at any time. In an abstract sense, you could say this is a CD-RW solution, but in the shape of a USB flash drive.”

With the optical drive quickly going away, users are seeking alternate solutions to provide data as a CD-ROM device. There are many advantages to CD-ROM discs which have served the technology sector for many years. The auto-run function of CD-ROM is key to many software suppliers who depend on a quick and simple installation process. The CD is a read-only device by definition so the added benefit of a virus or malware not jumping onto the flash drive is an inherent benefit.

The Nexcopy Disc License CD-ROM USB flash drive has the following features:

  • Default state of drive is read-only, a.k.a write protected
  • Use any ISO file to create a CD-ROM USB flash drive
  • Includes bootable ISO files
  • Device appears as a CD-ROM drive in any device
  • Free data-load software to produce CD-ROMs
  • Re-write a new ISO file to the drive at any time
  • This is a hardware solution so cannot be hacked or manipulated
  • Available in USB 2.0 and 3.0 technology and ranging from 2GB through 128GB capacities

Stan McCrosky, head of Sales, comments, “I spent over 15 years in the CD and DVD duplication industry and this sector is scrambling to find good alternatives to CDs and DVDs. The issue we see, are companies having libraries of ISO files and wanting to convert them to work with flash drives. The Disc License drive solves this problem because there is no conversion necessary, the library of ISO files can immediately be used with our new Disc License product. So far the response has been overwhelming.”

The Disc License USB flash drive is simple to implement. Steps include:

  • Connect USB to a Windows computer
  • Open the GUI (Graphical User Interface) software, Drive Wizard, to identify drives
  • Point software at ISO file
  • Click burn

Re-writting to the drive is simple:

  • Connect USB to a Windows computer
  • Open the GUI (Graphical User Interface) software, Drive Wizard, to identify drives
  • Point software at ISO file
  • Click burn
  • Drive Wizard software will over-write old data with new ISO file
