The Addonics Pocket UDD (Ultra DigiDrive) II is one of the fastest Readers/Writers for Flash media, PCMCIA hard drives and ATA Flash. Built on the same utilitarian concept of its predecessor Pocket UDD, the Pocket UDD II supports maximum throughput of 150 Mbytes/sec via eSATA or the latest USB 3.0 connection, cutting almost half of the data transfer time between the new high speed media and the computer.
By using an optional CF DigiAdapter or the Addonics Flash DigiAdapter Extreme, the Pocket UDD II can also be used like a regular flash reader to read/write to other popular Flash media - CF-I, CF-II, Smart Media, Memory stick, Secure Digital Card, Multimedia Card, Micro Drive or XD Card.
This Ultra DigiDrive II also comes in the form of an internal device for mounting into standard 3.5" drive bay of Desktop of any computing equipment. For detail of the internal version, please visit the internal Ultra DigiDrive II product page.

Serial ATA hot swap feature works only with controllers basing on Silicon Image chip set from our in house testing. Other controllers that are not Silicon Image based may not support hot swap. You may consider adding one of the Addonics Serial ATA host controllers to your systems to ensure the hot swap capability. New controllers from Intel and other suppliers may finally support this feature. Please verify with your controller manufacturer if you need to have hot swap in your application. Hot swap is supported in Windows 2000 and XP only. On other OS, drive can be removed without crashing system. But replacing with a different drive can result in crashing the OS.
