Press Release Body: Diamond Bar, California, April 14, 2008 -- Advanced Media, Inc.,
is a manufacturer and marketer of the popular Ridata brand of recordable DVD media,
electronic storage products and digital media accessories. Ridata SSD will be

distributor. Advanced Media will be demonstrating the advantages of Ridata SSD's in

"We are pleased Ingram Micro has selected our award-winning Ridata Solid State
Drives to offer as an option for the wide variety of resellers they work with. The
energy efficient drives provide many benefits over hard disk drives including fast
boot up and access times that improve overall system performance," remarked Harvey
Liu, Advanced Media President.

The Ridata SSD drives are now available to resellers through Ingram Micro, for the
retail, SMB, government industrial and education markets. Advanced Media has also
created a series of educational materials designed to help the end consumer better
understand SSD and make an educated purchase decision. For more information on the

Advanced Media's distribution agreement with Ingram Micro is facilitated through
AccessChannel Partners LLC which enables Ingram Micro to offer Ridata SSD as an
alternative to hard disk drives to its retailers, SMB, government and
education-oriented clients. Ridata SSDs offers the right mix of cost and performance
to satisfy today\'s demanding storage requirements to resellers in the U.S.

Businesses today are under pressure to conserve revenue and go green. Ridata SSD
drives help solve both these challenges. Durable Ridata Solid State Drives have no
moving parts, which allow them to be virtually silent, run cooler, and use less
power than a traditional hard disk drive. They are better equipped to survive in
harsh environments and also offer strong shock tolerance. Most computer veterans
have experienced hard drive failure and the hours of work involved in restoring
data. SSD offers a solution that may replace mechanical hard drives as the storage
medium of choice.

The Ridata 2.5" Turbo SATA SSD drive is a solid-state flash disk, based on NAND
flash technology. Using single-level-chip technology, the Ridata SSD drive provides
consistent performance and has lower-power consumption than hard disk drives so
mobile user time is dramatically extended. Meeting bus interface industry standard
Serial ATA (SATA) ensures there are no host compatibility or upgrading issues. The
Ridata drive offers reliable temperature (0 to 70C) and humidity resistance,
assuring long-lasting data storage.
