CD COPIER PRO CAN CREATE 23 CD-ROM DRIVES ON HARD DRIVE.

IMSI(R) (NASDAQ:IMSI), Novato, Calif., developer and publisher of business productivity software, has introduced CD Copier Pro Edition. "Using available hard disk space, CD Copier allows your computer to create more than one CD-ROM drive," said Monique Stern, product manager for IMSI. "In fact, you can assign up to 23 active virtual CD-ROM drives on your hard drive - giving you access to as many as 23 CD-ROM applications at one time! In essence, CD Copier turns your hard drive into a fast, multi-disc CD-ROM drive."

Why would business professionals want more than one CD-ROM drive? According to Stern, the net benefits to users are convenience, portability and speed.

"For example, to business travelers, it means not having to carry CDs and external CD-ROM drives with their laptops and risk damage to master CDs," she said. "And it eliminates the need to swap CDs in and out of your CD-ROM drive - which increases productivity dramatically."

She added that - to save valuable hard disk space - CD Copier Pro includes the option to create compressed virtual CDs with a compression ratio of up to 80 percent. CD Copier Pro works with a variety of formats, including ISO 9660, Mixed Mode, CD Audio, CD Extra, CD-R and Photo CDs.

"In addition, CD Copier Pro is the perfect solution for distributing properly licensed PC software company wide," she said. "After an organization creates a virtual drive on a network server, any member of their MIS team or a single user can quickly and easily access virtual CDs on the server, making them available to multiple users up to the number of seats they have licensed."

CD Copier Far Exceeds Windows(R) Explorer for Copying CDs

Stern notes that, unlike Windows Explorer, CD Copier Pro will copy and run audio tracks as well as files. CD Copier Pro also will maintain the exact folder and file structure that exists on the CD-ROM, saving the application to the root of the virtual drive.

System Requirements and Availability

CD Copier Pro requires a Pentium or better PC, Windows(R) 95, 98 or NT 4.0 operating system, 32 MB RAM, 16 MB of hard disk space, and a CD-ROM drive (At least 500 MB of free hard disk space is recommended for virtual CD-ROM files, depending on the size and number of CD-ROMs to be placed in CD container files. ) CD Copier Pro is available in retail stores nationwide for an estimated street price of $29.95.
