Diskology, Inc. Adds Laptop Adapters to the Disk Jockey Product Line

– Adapters let customers use 2.5” hard disk drives with popular copy / diagnostic tool –

Lincoln, CA 8/3/2004 Diskology, Inc. added two laptop adapters to their product line up today. The adapters, known simply as “Fred” and “Steve” allow users to attach 2.5” IDE laptop drives to the Disk Jockey IDE hard disk cloning / diagnostic tool. By using the laptop adapters users can transfer data between laptop drives at high speeds, copy data from a laptop drive to a standard 3.5” desktop IDE hard disk drive or from a 3.5” hard disk drive to a laptop drive. By using Diskology’s recently released serial-ATA (SATA) adapter as well, users can transfer data from a laptop drive to a SATA drive and vice-versa.

“During the first few months of the Disk Jockey’s availability we received hundreds of requests from people who wanted to copy data to and from laptop hard disk drives using the Disk Jockey,” said Tony Overbay, President and CEO of Diskology, Inc. “We’ve gone to great lengths to provide our customers with two options of laptop adapters based on their technical expertise, comfort level and budget.”

The Disk Jockey is a Swiss Army Knife of a hard disk copy / backup / diagnostic tool. The Disk Jockey can be used on either a Windows or Macintosh computer or as a stand-alone device. The Disk Jockey mounts IDE hard disk drives via USB 2.0 and Firewire as well as mirrors, spans, copies, compares, tests and erases hard disk drives using either a 1-pass or a 3-pass erase per the National Security Administration (NSA) guidelines. Testimonials on how the Disk Jockey is being used by IT and MIS departments, as well as a variety of other computer professionals and hobbyists can be found on the Diskology website. The Disk Jockey recently received a 5 out of 6 star rating from PC Test Pro as well as a 4 mouse rating from MacUser UK.

“Fred” is the less expensive of the two laptop adapters and is described on the Diskology web site as being designed for the person “who likes wires and boards and things on your tech bench (to impress colleagues and hopefully impress the geeky guy/gal in the office, too).” Fred is essentially a board with a connector on one side for the Disk Jockey, a connector on the other side for the laptop hard disk drive. Fred carries an SRP of $10.

“Steve” carries an SRP of $35 and actually resembles a drive sled. With “Steve” the laptop drive is inserted into the sled and the sled then connected to the Disk Jockey.

“Fred and Steve were actually the products code names,” said Overbay. “We used them so much that we really had a hard time changing them to anything else so for now, they have stuck.”

The Disk Jockey is available for a suggested retail price of $329 directly from Diskology or it can be found at more aggressive prices from Diskology resellers worldwide. For more information on the Disk Jockey, or to find a list of Diskology resellers users can visit or email
