Difference between USB and SD/microSD Write Protection
16 May 2016
The newest technique for marketing and the distributing of important information
is by using a USB drive or a SD/microSD memory card. In a recent newsletter
U-Reach introduced write protect options for both USB and SD/microSD media
storage devices. For further detail the write protect feature differs from USB to
When the write protection option is used on a USB flash drive; the space that was
not occupied can still be used. For example, companies can give out USB drives
and the information that has been placed on it with write protection cannot be
deleted but the space that was unutilized can then still be used for storage. A
consultant company purchased the Intelligent 9 USB Write Protect Series for
marketing purposes. As a promotional giveaway they handed out USB drives with
write protected material so that it can be viewed and not deleted; then the space
free of information can be used for other purposes. The difference between the
feature of write protect on a USB drive and SD/microSD memory card is that when
a SD/microSD card is write protected the empty space that was left unutilized
cannot be used.
Recently, a customer of U-Reach purchased the Intelligent 9 Combo SD/MicroSD
Golden Series Duplicator purposely
for the write protection feature.
The customer happened to be a
church organization. This
organization uses microSD
memory cards to distribute
copies of virtual bibles.
With the write protection
feature this ensures that
the information placed on
the microSD memory cards
cannot be deleted. Therefore,
those who were given the
microSD cards will only be
given the read-only option and will only be able to use for that purpose.
