Diamond Bar, Calif. - -February 21, 2006 - -Advanced Media, Inc., manufacturer and marketer of the popular RIDATA brand of recordable CD and DVD media, electronic storage products, and digital media accessories, has added a 115X 256MB Micro SD memory card and a 150X 1GB MMC Mobile card to its popular RIDATA brand of flash memory products.

Micro SD cards are the smallest removable storage platforms available. As with other RIDATA Micro SD capacities, the new 256MB version offers full compatibility and interoperability with current Secure Digital devices, when used with the included adapter. It also supports video electronic devices featuring a TransFlash slot. CPRM encryption is in affect when it is used with the adapter. It features fast 115x read/write speeds.

"These increased capacity cards add to the value of our existing RIDATA memory card product line," stated Harvey Liu, Advanced Media president. "With the increasing use of video electronic and mobile devices, the demand has skyrocketed for more removable storage capacity in smaller form factor cards. Anyone using digital photo imaging products will find our 256MB Micro SD and 1GB MMC Mobile storage mediums deliver that additional space."

The RIDATA 150X 1GB MMC Mobile card features a fast 22.5MB per second transfer rate and is highly compatible with any device using a MMC or SD card slot. The rugged, reliable, waterproof card is built to withstand the demanding environments of an active mobile lifestyle.
