    The Software Package

    The MemPlug comes with software to take full advantage of the extra storage space. The free software includes:

    • PiBackup - Allows you to backup all the programs and files on your Visor with a touch of a button, and store it somewhere safe. This is useful for people on the go, or those that want to protect their data.
    • PiMover - This application allows you to manage files between your Visor and the SmartMediaTM card. You can delete, copy, and move files to and from the internal Visor memory and the SmartMediaTM card. This is a very useful application to manage all your files.
    • PiViewer - Allows you to view JPEG files stored directly in the SmartMediaTM card. So, you can basically take pictures with your digital camera and view them on your Visor. This application supports both color and gray scale pictures, so non-Prism owners can still benefit.
    • PiPrefs - Gives you the ability to get information about the SmartMediaTM card, as well as format it and change some gMovie preferences.
    • gMovie - Allows you to convert your own movies and animation to files that can be played from the Visor's internal memory or the SmartMediaTM card. It includes gMovie Player and gMovie Maker. Has options for B & W, gray scale, and color, so all Visor handhelds can use it.

    The software is basically what makes the MemPlug so versatile. You don't even need to manually install any of it either, since it's built into the module itself. The programs are automatically installed whenever a SmartMediaTM card is inserted into the MemPlug. The only thing you need to install is gMovie Maker to create gMovie files that can be played on the Visor. It's this convenience that sets the MemPlug apart from other similar storage solutions.
