FLASH2GUI Network Software

FLASH2GUI Network Software

Manufacturer: Solid State Disk Ltd

FLASH2GUI is a graphical user interface that fully integrates with Solid State Disks’ SCSIFlash™ and FLOPPYFlash™ emulation drives that use standard, industrial CompactFlash card technology to provide a solid state, drop-in replacement for obsolete electro-mechanical hard, floppy and tape drives.

SCSIFlash™ and FLOPPYFlash™ provide OEMs and service providers with a quick, easy and cost-efficient solution for supporting their legacy systems and equipment.

Product Details

FLASH2GUI Network SoftwareFLASH2GUI is used for the control and configuration of the SCSIFlash™ and FLOPPYFlash™ emulation drives as well as network backup and restore operations. FLASH2GUI is available for both Microsoft Windows and as a command line interface for Linux.

FLASH2GUI enables the configuration of the SCSIFlash™ and FLOPPYFlash™ firmware to facilitate a perfect host match, eliminating the need for any host hardware or software changes. It also features multiple login levels to prevent unauthorised use and can be used to set the disk capacity from 1Mb to 64GB, set the drive emulation, the drive’s IP address and name remotely as well as write protect and erase a drive’s contents.

FLASH2GUI’s Image Editor facilitates data backup and restore based on a bit-for-bit disk image which can be unpacked, edited, re-packed and restored direct the SCSIFlash™ and FLOPPYFlash™ drive. It also enables the creation of a new formatted drive and the addition of new software install files to run from the drive.

Demonstrations of how to use FLASHGUI on SCSIFlash™ and FLOPPYFlash™ for configuration and control, back-up and restore and the selection of different drive emulations, can be seen of Solid State Disk’s YouTube channel:

FLASH2GUI supporting

FLASH2GUI supporting other Solid State Disks products:

SCSIFlash™

The SCSIFlash emulation drive is a drop-in replacement for obsolete 3.5 inch and 5.25 inch SCSI-based hard disk, magneto-optical and tape drives on legacy systems and equipment that uses removable, solid state CompactFlash to replace the respective media. With data cable connection made to a standard, 50 pin SCSI-1 or SCSI-2 connector, SCSIFlash is seen by the host as if it the original drive. Data transfer rates are up to 10Mbytes/s depending on the drive technology being replaced.

FLOPPYFlash

The FLOPPYFlash emulation drive is a drop-in replacement for obsolete 3.5 inch, 5.25 inch or 8 inch floppy disk drives on legacy systems and equipment that uses removable, solid state CompactFlash to replace the floppy disk media. With data cable connection made to a standard, 34 pin floppy edge connector, FLOPPYFlashTM is seen by the host as if it the original floppy drive. Data transfer rates are between 125kb/s and 500kb/s depending on the coding method selected.
