SAI releases first PC software for sony Blue Laser high capacity Re-Writeable optical disk drives

Software Architects announced the release of Disk Drive TuneUp™ Pro for MS Windows™. The software is the world's first PC product that supports the new Sony PDD drive, a blue laser based, high density optical recording device. ("PDD" is Sony's trademarked name: "Professional Disk for Data").

"The Sony PDD drive is the most significant new commercial optical recording product in a decade", said Robert Zollo, president of SAI. Having partnered with Sony to support MO solutions since 1991, we are pleased to be the first software supplier to support Sony PDD for PC applications". The software is targeted at business and professional users of Sony PDD internal and stand alone disk drives. Its companion developer toolkit is targeted to serve third party application developers and systems integrators of optical jukebox and network storage products

Disk Drive TuneUp™ Pro is the only utility you need to set up, run, test, repair and back up your files to Sony PDD drives. The software is both powerful and easy to use. The product includes three utilities:

• Disk Drive TuneUp (includes the formatting/testing application, UDF file system component, and the device driver suite),
• FixUDF!™ Disk Repair & File Recovery Utility
• DataSaver™ Personal Backup

Disk Drive TuneUp provides an easy to use “drive letter interface” for reading and writing to disc. Simply drag & drop files to add, arrange or delete from the disc within Windows Explorer. Third party applications can access the disc using standard Windows system calls. The Format application allows you to select the appropriate bus (SCSI, IDE, USB or FireWire), choose the drive, select the format type, partition & format the disc. Advanced features include testing the media and sparing defective sectors.

Disk Drive TuneUp provides you the option to use native FAT 16 and FAT 32 formats, or UDF for disc interchange between computer systems. Choose any version of UDF: v1.02, 1.5, 2.0 or 2.0.1. The software's proprietary “partition bar” interface allows you to create and size partitions by dragging partition flags with your mouse. Create FAT, UDF and empty partitions. This interface is Ideal for partitioning very high capacity media such as 23.3 Gbytes PDD disks.

The software includes backup support for multiple disc sets and file recovery on any system without the need for recovery software. Disks formatted in UDF can be diagnosed, repaired, and files recovered to hard disk as required.

Key Benefits:

• Single source product for all basic functions, including formatting, partitioning, reading, writing, backup, media repair and file recovery.
• Optimized for Sony PDD drives
• Backward compatible with installed base of Sony MO drives
• OSTA UDF compliant for reliable disc interchange
• Standard & Pro versions available
• Customizable for OEM and third party applications

Pricing & Availability
Disk Drive TuneUp Pro List Price: $99.00 US. OEM and Developer pricing available upon request. English version available October 2003. Japanese language version available November 2003. Euro language version available January 2004. UDF Developer Toolkits supporting Sony PDD & MO available October 2003.
