Bothell, WA October 28, 2010 – Datalight announced today support for Microsoft Windows 7 with desktop driver for its proprietary file system Reliance Nitro™. Reliance Windows Driver (RWD) allows data from devices using Datalight’s acclaimed file systems to be exchangeable with computers running Windows 7, XP or Vista. This allows, for example, users of CF cards formatted with Reliance Nitro to work in the CF card slot located in many printers and PCs. Current support is for 32-bit versions of Windows 7 with support for 64-bit versions slated for 2011.

 “RWD fulfills our goal of providing exchangeability, reliability and performance to our customers,” said Ken Whitaker, Datalight Director of Engineering. “With this desktop driver, device designers no longer have to compromise reliability to have exchangeability.”

Device manufactures, who choose Datalight file systems for superior performance and reliability vis-à-vis the file system found on desktop computers, can now provide their customers the ability to easily share data from their device to their desktop.

RWD is available immediately from Datalight and its reseller partners world-wide. Please visit us at to find a reseller near you.
