The Disc Steno CP-100, from Apacer.
The Disc Steno CP-100, from Apacer.....The Apacer Disc Steno CP-100 is a portable, battery-operated, multi-session CompactDisc recorder. Its main use is to transfer image files or other data from flash memory cards to CD-R or CD-R/W discs without a computer. This eliminates the need to buy multiple flash memory cards when vacationing or working out in the field and allows you to leave your laptop at home. The Disc Steno is an excellent tool for anyone that wants a simple way to archive their digital images on inexpensive and transportable CD media. It's a GREAT deal at $299...I tried one out last weekend, and it worked flawlessly!

The new Epson 960 Photo printer is in stock...What sets this aside from the others, is that it has not only the ability to print on roll paper, supplied with an automatic cutter, it allows you to print directly onto a "printable" CD....You can now design and print your own CD labels, and print them directly onto the CD. We're now stocking "Printable" CD's too from Imation.

MediaRECOVER Software is here! This image recovery software is a bit different from the Lexar software, as it will recover images from most current memory cards, where Lexar's only works with their own products. MediaRECOVER is PC based only at this point. We've run our own testes, and it really really works.....$ more here:

Happy Graduation to all the students out there.....Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad's … Summer, Here we are!
