HLDS continues to innovate and today introduces the Universal Data Station (UDS). So what is an UDS drive? And what it can offer to users?
Universal Data (UD) Station aims to "make data management in daily life easier" by diversifying the methods of recording, storing, sharing, and playing back data. That means easier data management using laptops and tablets while working from home or attending distance education. You can connect to various storage devices such as CD & DVD, SD card, USB memory, and external HDD. In addition to Windows and Mac OS compatibility, UD Link app enables connectivity with Android OS. Lastly provides convenience in transferring personal data stored in multiple cloud storages onto DVD and SD card.
UD (Universal Data Station) is a USB Type C External ODD drive with two USB Type an input ports & micro SD card reader. Universal Data Station connects laptop with Type-C USB cable and provides additional Type-A USB ports. It is a perfect choice to newly released laptops with less & without Type-A USB Port since users do not need to purchase additional multi-USB hub. Universal Data Station contains four ports that can be linked to multiple PC accessories. Users can connect all the devices to UD Station at once.
The first UDS drive from HLDS comes with the UD10NS20 codename. Users can use this device not only to burn & read CD & DVD media but also transfer media and view the content to an HDMI device with the integrated HDMI hub (more on this later on).
Apart from the hardware part, the UDS comes with a new powerful and redesigned app that supports watching DVDs on Android-based TV, tablets, and Smartphones, backup from your files to external media and much more. This product can play DVD on Android-based TVs such as Sony, Sharp, or Panasonic by connecting the USB cable (Type-C) included.

4. Music Playback.
Let’s now start playing around with the UD Link app. First we inserted a pressed Audio CD, The UD Link app, uses Gracenote engine to recognize the disc and displays Text information and graphics as well (network connection is required). As you can see all track titles are displayed perfectly, along with the CD Cover.

7. Data Backup.
Apart from the Audio CD backup, the UD Link can also backup normal files either in local storage (CD-DVD, USB flash disk) or in Cloud.
Apart from the mp3 files, we also added various pictures. We had selected the CD-DVD button and we press the "Start Backup" process.
8. The Hardware.
Using the latest OptiDriveControl v1.80 software we checked the drives abilities. The drive supports up to 24X CD-R, 8X DVD+ & -R write, 6X DVD+ & -R DL and 5X DVD-RAM writing speeds. The software indicates that the drive doesn't supports DVD+ & -RW DL media, which is false, the drive can read and write them perfectly.
