PC Controlled CD Organizer Allows Users to Store and Access MP3 Files

on Compact Disc

For family and friends looking for a gift the graduate will truly appreciate, KDS USA is offering its PC Controlled CD Organizer to store, catalog and quickly find MP3 files on compact disc.

Easily attached to a PC and controlled with a simple software program, the CD Organizer stores and catalogs up to 75 discs, including CD-RW or "burned" CDs, games, software, video CDs and DVDs. Disc contents (disc title, filenames and directory names) are scanned using the PC's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Once the contents are scanned and the discs stored in the CD Organizer tower, users may retrieve a desired disc by title, filename or keyword with a click of the mouse.

The product is currently available from national consumer electronics retailer Micro Center and online outlets such as Buy.com, TigerDirect.com and Computersforsure.com. The product has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $139.99.

"The CD Organizer is a perfect gift for high school and college graduates who burn dozens of music CDs and want to find their favorite MP3 files quickly," said Erin Rippee, vice president of marketing for KDS USA. "The product eliminates the inconvenience of sorting through usually unmarked CD jewel cases for a favorite MP3 file."

The CD Organizer also offers "Lend" functionality that allows graduates to track CDs that have been lent out to others. This feature alerts users via an on-screen reminder that the preset, user-determined time period has elapsed.

The product also saves hard drive space because games and other software can be stored in the CD Organizer rather than loaded on the PC.

Measuring 7.7-inches wide, 20.5-inches high and 11-inches deep, the CD Organizer tower consumes less space than many conventional CD racks. Utilizing a USB connection for quick set-up, users may link additional CD Organizer towers for even greater storage capacity.

For more information, consumers can contact KDS USA at 800/283-1311 or visit the company's Web site at www.kdsusa.com.
