Paragon Software Group, a provider of mobile device and embedded system offerings, has released NTFS for Windows CE to tackle the incompatibilities of Windows CE-based multimedia systems with NTFS-formatted portable storage devices.
According to Paragon Software, the NTFS for Windows CE provides an offering to address the end-user demand to access a range of multimedia and data content from portable storage devices. The new offering was developed to allow Windows CE-based devices such as from entertainment systems to GPS navigators, mobile phones/smart handheld devices and other portable products, to access stored content.
The new NTFS for Windows CE is based on Paragon’s Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology, which was developed to provide access (read/write, format, etc.) to volumes of the file systems (NTFS, FAT, Ext2/3FS, etc.) under various platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, DOS, etc.) where these file systems normally are not supported, the company said.
Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software, said: There is no question that the popularity of Windows CE devices is growing; however file system incompatibility can be a pacing issue for a wide range of consumer products. Delivering support for NTFS under Windows CE bridges this gap, and our technology will become a catalyst for unleashing a whole new range of applications.”
