Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the launch of its new Copy Protection SD/microSD Memory Cards. By recording data in a CDROM style partition, Copy Protection SD/microSD cards ensure the safety of valuable intellectual property against unauthorized copy, modification, and deletion.



Guaranteed Protection
Exclusive ideas, creations, and artistic work are priceless assets, and essential to future business success. Including such materials in marketing campaigns requires an effective data management strategy to not only allow users to view the given content but also avoid possible duplication. As a result, Copy Protection SD/microSD memory cards guarantee protection of important media by storing audio and video files in a read-only partition, in a manner similar to a CD.

Maximum Defense
Pre-loading memory cards at the point of manufacture ensures data cannot be copied or deleted, removing the effect of sophisticated cracking tools and even reformatting. Moreover, the inability to write new data offers an extra level of security against a loaded virus, which may destroy files and spread infection to other computers. For ease of use, Transcend’s Copy Protection SD/microSD cards have been comprehensively tested for compatibility with most platforms, regardless of the host device software and hardware settings.

Customized Solutions
For added promotional value, Copy Protection SD/microSD cards can be adapted to provide partially protected and partially free areas, allowing users to save and modify files in the free space as per a normal memory card. This functional aspect generates regular viewing of marketing material, helping to build lifetime customer value and enhance the whole user experience.

Copy Protection SD cards are available by request in 2GB-64GB capacities. Copy Protection microSD cards are available by request in 2GB-16GB capacities. All are backed by Transcend’s limited lifetime warranty.

Maybe i'm missing the point here but,

Why would Read only stop you from Copying something, basic logic says that files on a read only partition can simply be copied onto the Local storage of the device using a memory card

CD-ROMs are read only memory, and that doesn't stop people copying them, because being able to read a file is all that's needed to copy it

All this does is stop people deleting stuff

They basically changed it to something that we have 9001 tools that can copy it?

From the description it looks like all it is a Read only filesystem, if i understand correctly the way to get around that is by right clicking the file you want, clicking copy, opening a folder on your hard drive and clicking paste
