Diamond Bar, CA - -December 18, 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, is set to add a non -volatile Flash Solid State Disk (SSD) storage medium to its RIDATA line.

It is available in 16 GB and 32GB capacities. It will be on display in the Advanced Media 2007 International CES booth, South Hall 3 (Upper Level, S3) Booth 31573.

"Based on flash -memory technology, our new RIDATA Flash SSD offers highly reliable data storage and rugged, high -performance," remarked Harvey Liu, Advanced Media president. "When compared to a traditional HDD, the RIDATA
SSD requires less power, weighs less than half as much, offers faster boot and access times, operates at a lower temperature and has no mechanical moving parts. It is the perfect HDD replacement for any notebook, sub -notebook, or tablet PC."

Since it has no moving parts, the RIDATA Flash SSD produces virtually no noise, no heat generation, and no vibration, while offering more reliable temperature and humidity that assures long -lasting storage. It is engineered with semiconductor components and uses NAND flash memory. Importantly, it
also has the same host interface as a hard disk drive, so there is no issues with compatibility or upgrading. It simply plugs into a device's IDE slot.

It meets bus interface industry standard ATA/IDE and SATA, also supports up to PIO Mode -4 and up to Multiword DMA Mode -2. It has a flash media interface of 8 - or 16 -bit access and can support up to eight flash -media devices directly and 32 such devices through external decoding logic. A built -in ECC
corrects up to three -random 12 -bit symbols per 512 -byte sector. RIDATA offers 18" and 2.5" module -type Flash SSD for an ATA/IDE interface and 2.5" for a SATA interface.

The RIDATA Flash Solid State Disk (SSD) has an MSRP of $169.00/pc and will be available around middle of Dec., 2006. As with most other RIDATA products, it will be available through selected retailers, RIDATA distributors, and at various online outlets.
