Windows Feature Pack for Storage 1.0 - Blu-ray for Vista

Postby Ian on Tue Aug 19, 2008 9:17 pm

A pre-release (beta) version of Microsoft's Windows Feature Pack for Storage 1.0 is available for download through their Connect website. The pack includes three separate installers:

Active Storage Platform: This pre-release package enables the Windows platform to restrict access to portable devices (such as a USB Flash Device) via a certificate or password authentication based on the IEEE 1667 standard specification.

Image Mastering API update for Blu-Ray media: This feature enables the Windows platform to do master style optical burning on Blu-Ray media.

Smart Card Driver: This release provides support for new form factors, such as ICCD/CCID.

Here's the link: https://connect.microsoft.com/site/site ... SiteID=434

You will need to sign into the Connect website before you can download the installers.
