Operation of the Pocket UDD
You must have a media inside the Pocket DigiDrive when it is the first time
to install this device to your computer.
The pocket UDD is designed not to draw any power when there is no media
inserted. So the LED light will remain off even the device is connected to the
computer.
Use the following procedures to add or remove the media from the Pocket
UDD.
1.
Insert the media fully into the device, the LED light will turn green,
indicating the media is properly inserted inside and the device is now
turned on. Your operating system will report new hardware detected
and begin to install the device. This may take a few seconds before a
new drive icon appears in the My Computer folder. During this
initialization, the LED light on the Pocket UDD toggles between
orange and green color. The LED will stay green when the device is
ready.
2.
Once the drive icon appears, the media is now ready and can be used
like regular floppy media.
3.
During the read / write operation, the LED light of the Pocket UDD
will turn Red.
4.
To remove the media, clicks on the Safe Remove icon to stop the
connection as shown below. Once the “you may now safely remove
window shows up”, you can then remove the media from the Pocket
UDD by pushing on the eject button.
Note: if you eject the media from the Pocket UDD without checking
the Safe Remove icon, a warning message will appear from Windows
98SE, Me and 2000. This message is a reminder that it is safer to use
the Safe Remove icon when you remove the media to prevent possible
data loss in case you are in the middle of copying a file to and from the
media. You can go ahead and close this message.
5.
After the media is ejected from the Pocket UDD, the LED light will go
off, indicating the media is fully ejected from the device. Do not pull
the media out of the device without using the eject button. This may
crash the computer as it does not realize the media has been manually
removed from the device.

Pocket UDD, Using the optional Addonics CF
DigiAdapter and 4-in-1 DigiAdapter or equivalent third
party adapter)
Note: To remove the media from the Pocket UDD, use the safe
Removal icon from the system tray.
Media
To use the Pocket UDD for other media other than PCMCIA hard drive and
ATA flash, the Addonics DigiAdapters are required. These adapters come
standard with the AEPUDDU9 and AEPUDDFW9 models and they can also be
purchased separately.
Use the Addonics CF DigiAdapter for CF-I, CF-II and Micro Drive and the
4-in-1 DigiAdapter for Memory Stick, Smart Media, Secure Digital Card and
Multi Media Card.
