SmartDisk Announces VST Portable 100GB FireWire RAID Ultimate DV Solution
for Apple Macintosh Computers

Las Vegas, NV -- April 12, 2000 -- SmartDisk Corporation (Nasdaq: SMDK), a
company whose products simplify the digital lifestyle, today announced a
100GB FireWire-based RAID array (Redundant Array of Independent Disks)
designed to work with all FireWire-equipped Apple- Macintosh computers.
This product was under development by VST Technologies, Inc., a leading
FireWire- and USB developer, which was recently acquired by SmartDisk. The
VST FireWire RAID array is being demonstrated at the National Association
of Broadcasters Expo in Las Vegas this week at the Sands Hotel, booth
number MI 1138.

The VST FireWire RAID array is a compact, portable tower that supports up
to four VST FireWire hard drives which can be used separately or together
for the efficient storage and rapid transfer of digital data.
RAID arrays are typically used in demanding professional applications, such
as video and audio broadcasting, where large amounts of digital video,
graphics, and music must be captured and manipulated in real time for
storage and/or editing. Used as a RAID array, multiple drives provide
significantly increased capacity and performance. The VST FireWire RAID
array is a unique FireWire solution that offers users both a compact size
and built-in battery backup.

Using the VST FireWire RAID array, television film crews, 3-D animators,
musicians and audio engineers can capture and store large amounts of
digital data on location. The VST array is also well-suited for field
editing, providing the power previously found only in costly editing rooms.
This allows content producers to quickly and inexpensively complete their
projects without compromising technical quality or sophisticated effects.

"SmartDisk is pleased and excited to be the first company to provide a
FireWire-based RAID solution," said Vincent Fedele, Chief Technology
Officer, SmartDisk Corporation. "High performance from such a small array
that is both portable and reliable will help make possible many mobile
applications that previously were unachievable. The VST FireWire RAID array
embodies SmartDisk's mission of providing solutions that help consumers and
professionals simplify their use of today's digital appliances and
applications."

The VST FireWire RAID array is expected to be commercially released in June
2000. Advance orders are being accepted now. For ordering information,
pricing and additional specifications visit the VST web site
