Sydney, Australia, August 18, 2011 – Lite-On, a global leader of optical storage solutions, today introduced its integrated disc burning tool for the PC, iPad and iPhone, MyDisk Suite. Due to a perceived complexity, a massive 83% of users do not install the burning software that comes with their drives, prompting Lite-On to develop MyDisk Suite. MyDisk Suite addresses and simplifies this issue by taking a very different approach that complements how today’s social generation actually use disc burners.
A generation of 17-45 year old customers who share their lives and their media have difficulty finding files they have burned and find current burning software difficult to use. MyDisk Suite requires only a few straightforward steps and incorporates a set of applications for the PC, iPad and iPhone. Applications including DiskIndex, DiskCollection, DiskCase, and DiskMobile present a brand-new approach to disc burning, making disc burning easier, smarter and more interesting. It brings together drag-and-drop disc burning, file/disc indexing, customised menus, personalised disc covers and iOS image burning that is intuitive and user-centric.
DiskMobile allows users to transfer iOS images straight to a Lite-On DVD burner. Burn images from an iOS device onto disc and share files by giving other Lite-On owners the unique internet address. Additionally, DiskMobile can be used to back up photos against theft or loss of iPhone or iPad and free up storage on the device.
DiskCase is an innovative iPad application offering users the option to design disc covers that are ready to use once printed on to a single sheet of paper. Creative case covers replace the boring, bland ones of the past – design an original case cover or tailor an in-built template and display a strikingly special disc.
DiskIndex burns discs with easy to navigate, customised autorun menus that automatically load on a PC. Previously, when sharing files recipients had to tediously search through file lists looking for the photo, project files or videos. With DiskIndex, when the disc is inserted into a PC a custom menu appears allowing the user to find and view files to share. To create a disc with a DiskIndex menu, simply select one of the professionally designed DiskIndex templates, choose the menu items by dragging icons, then add the files to burn and click burn. Also, users can design personalised DiskIndex menus to reflect individual taste, profession or lifestyle.
DiskCollection is the world’s first burning software with a built-in data management solution allows users to easily describe and group discs, effectively creating a personal disc database. Featuring a drag-and-drop interface, disc cover printing, plus disc classification and automatic contents indexing, DiskCollection makes file and disc management more efficient in three simple steps. Firstly, type a brief description of the disc and drag-and-drop the files to be burned; click burn; then print the disc cover. DiskCollection automatically saves the details of each disc in its searchable index – the cover image, description and content of any disc are immediately accessible.
Minnie Lin, Marketing Manager at PLDS, said, “The Lite-On brand is known for pioneering products that serve its customers. When we discovered the difficulties users had with current burning software, we knew that we had the means to develop a breakthrough solution. MyDisk Suite is the first disc software built to fit with the way today’s social generation uses burners, customises files, and shares content. Its rich, easy-to-use interface integrates PC, iPhone, and iPad.”
DiskMobile and DiskCase will be available for download through the Apple iTunes App Store late August 2011. Note: DiskMobile and DiskCase is compatible only with Lite-On optical disk storage devices.
The Lite-On MyDisk Suite integrated disc burning tool for the PC, iPad and iPhone will be included with the Lite-On eNAU808 DVD writer – availability and RRP yet to be confirmed.
