Flash duplication (also known as memory card or USB duplication) is the process of copying data such as music, video, software and marketing material onto digital memory cards e.g. USB drives. These memory cards can be used in devices such as computers, MP3 players, PDAs, GPS, camera phones etc.
Printed and loaded USB is one of the most effective promotional products available. They are highly portable and are available in a huge range of styles, shapes and colours. Corporate branding with your logo, service offerings and /or contact details offers a nice final touch. (Flash drive samples)
Flash drive capacity ranges from 512k (rare now) to 32GB and even 64GB. They are are extremely durable, most with data retention guarantees of 3-10 years.

We do not keep stock of any flash media, ordering as needed, as prices are falling and capacity rising almost daily. We usually only SUPPLY IN MINIMUM QUANTITES OF 50, although there is NO MIMIMUM QUANTITY FOR FLASH DUPLICATION.

Flash is available in different qualities. SCANDISK are the largest and best known manufacturers who also claim probably rightly to supply only AAA Grade. Many other manufacturers also claim, probably rightly, to supply only AA Grade. The problem is that too many AA Grade suppliers only supply a limited shape and colour range and often only with the manufacturer's logo already printed.
So if you want customised USB sticks, you will usually have to settle for A which are very good quality and suitable for most uses, except critical life support applications.
Not every application needs AAA grade, same as not everyone can afford or needs a Rolls Royce.
CDROM Services verify every stick that they duplicate, and where absolute reliability is important, for only a small extra cost, re-verifying a second time on another day. This ensures that the data appears safely on every flash card and that the card has retained the data.
There are several types of flash cards. Details of each are described below.
SD are the most popular of the small cards. They are used in computers, phones, cameras, PDA's, video cameras, GPS, games and more. They are available in sizes of 1GB, with 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. Loading speed varies from 80x to 150x. But this is not material except for special high capacity needs. For computers, PDA, and GPS applications standard speed will usually be sufficient.
These are the very small Flash cards, popular in phones, which need to be inserted into an adaptor the size of the SD card for duplicating, making them expensive to duplicate.
These are probably the second most popular Flash cards. They are a square shape. Their sizes range from 1GB to 32GB.
These are used in Sony devices.
