PACE developed the USB Floppy Enabler in response to the needs of customers using its InterLok* anti-piracy products, a fifth generation tool set for protecting, distributing and selling software.
The USB Floppy Enabler currently supports Imation1s SuperDisk and Newer Technology1s uDrive, two of the leading external USB floppy systems.
PACE is working with several other major USB floppy drive manufacturers to ensure universal compatibility.
This driver will not only allow software products and content protected by InterLok* to be authorized with PACE1s KeyDiskettes, but it will also enable other developers1 software products to access the new USB drives, said PACE president and CEO, Allen Cronce. Our USB Floppy Enabler should be of interest to anyone with software that makes calls to the floppy drive. PACE's InterLok technology has been successfully protecting our Japanese font products for nearly ten years, said Jim DeLaHunt, Adobe Type Library Engineering Manager.
The floppyless PowerMac G3 machines presented us with a unique situation that called for an innovative solution. PACE's innovation has averted a major re-engineering expense and will help us provide uninterrupted distribution of our Japanese font products.
