FAQs

SSD

What is the difference between an SSD drive and an HDD drive?

One of the biggest differences between SSD and HDD, is that SSD drives have no moving parts. Since there are no moving parts, SSD drives are significantly faster, quieter, and more resistant to shock and vibration.

How do I install my SSD drive into my computer?

Please refer to our quick start guide at https://www.lexar.com/support/downloads/

Do I need to install drivers before installing SSD?
    1. In general speaking, if SSD supports SATA interface, the driver is built in Windows 7 & 10. No need to install any third-party driver.

 

    1. If SSD supports PCIe, an NVMe driver must be installed in Windows 7. Windows 10 has native driver for PCIe SSD.
What the “S.M.A.R.T” is? How can I check the S.M.A.R.T of my SSD?

S.M.A.R.T stands for “Self-Monitor and Report Technology”, is built in hard drives and solid-state drives to indicate condition of drives. All Lexar SSD series support S.M.A.R.T, and Lexar provides SSD Dash, free downloaded tool on Lexar official website to help users get S.M.A.R.T values easily. The S.M.A.R.T contains Average P/E Cycle Count, Total Power-on Time, Power-on Cycle Count, Total Host Writes/Read and other specific information.

How to keep the operating system and data in my original drive when I purchase a new solid-state drive?

System cloning is the recommended way to transfer the operating system to SSD. It would keep all data, setting, drivers that needed for your computer. To clone your drive, Lexar recommends EaseUS Todo Backup as assistant, please visit https://www.easeus.com/ to have more detail.

What is a “Garbage Collection”?

In SSD, lots of scattered data pieces will generate in use. The Garbage Collection (so called GC) mechanism is to move these pieces into specific physical units, and then to reuse the original units to store new data. Garbage Collection is necessary and results in overall performance of SSD. Lexar optimizes the algorithm for highly efficient GC to ensure SSD works smoothly.

What the “Trim” is? What is the relationship between trim and garbage collection?

TRIM is an OS (Operating System) command set, which was started supporting in Windows 7. When user deletes a file, OS sends TRIM to inform SSD about the operation, then SSD marks the specific storage units to invalid state. Once the GC operates, GC could be more precise and efficient to erase the storage unit without unnecessary reallocation of data in flash memory.

What is “M.2”?

M.2 is known as NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor), enables expansion, contraction, and higher integration of functions onto a single form factor specification. SSD is one of the devices adopts M.2, and it offers slim, compact sized to be flexible in different devices.

Why my performance benchmark is different to the values expected?
    1. Testing values vary with different benchmark tools.

 

    1. The version of tools also has an impact on testing result.

 

    1. The platforms could influence the result as well. Generally, the performance would be better on high-end platform

 

    1. If SSD was used before and contains data inside, it could get a bit of slower

Every single test has little difference results even in the same condition.

How do I check if my computer is compatible to use M.2 Pcle SSD?

M.2 slot may only support SATA protocol. Please contact the service center or visit the websites of your PC/laptop/motherboard manufacturer to realize the specification details before purchasing M.2 PCIe SSD.

Does SSD require defragmentation?

SSD has a mechanism, wear leveling. This mechanism ensures every single physical storage units get the same P/E cycle. It aims to extend the working life. Defragmentation is not required.

Does modifying or tampering with my SSD drive void the warranty?

Modifying or tampering with your SSD drive will void your warranty.

Do NVMe M.2 SSD drives work with any M.2 slot?

No, please verify your laptop or desktop supports NVMe SSD Drives.

SD/microSD

¿Qué es UHS?

UHS es la sigla en inglés de “ultra alta velocidad” y hace referencia a la nueva tecnología que ofrece velocidades más altas de interfaz de bus en tarjetas Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) y Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC). UHS-I define velocidades de interfaz de hasta 104 MB/segundo. Una tarjeta SDHC o SDXC que admite “UHS” puede tener un rendimiento de hasta 104 MB/segundo.

¿Qué es la clase de velocidad U1/U3?
Algunas de las tarjetas de memoria UHS nuevas pueden tener la marca U1, que se refiere a la clase de velocidad U1 diseñada para la tarjeta UHS-I. La clase de velocidad U1 designa un rendimiento de captura (escritura) mínimo de 10 megabytes por segundo para la grabación de contenido de video simultáneo. Tenga en cuenta que, aunque U1 tiene la misma velocidad que la clase de velocidad 10, se les realiza pruebas diferentes, por lo que si la tarjeta es compatible con una, no implica que también lo sea con la otra.

 

What is the V30/V60/V90 Video Speed Class?

A constant writing speed class for video recording. There are three kinds of Speed Classes, “Speed Class”, “UHS Speed Class” and “Video Speed Class.” This Speed Class provide the constant speed necessary for video recording by designating a minimum writing performance, this include V6、V10、V30、V60 and V90. V6 Speed Class means that the minimum write speed of the memory card needs to reach 6MB/s, V10 is 10MB/s, 30 is 30MB/s, and so on.

V60 and V90 can be applied to high resolution and high quality 8K video recording, and V30 can be applied to 4K resolution.

SD makers will print these speed class symbols on memory card (V60, V90…etc.). These speed class symbols will be applied to SDHC, SDXC, UHS-I, UHS-II and SD memory card help users decide the best combination for reliable recording.

What is A1/A2 application performance class?
It is used for smartphone application performance classification. Application Performance Class 1 (A1) and Class 2 (A2) defines the minimum average of random read/write IOPS. IOPS specification of A1 is read 1500IOPS /write 500IOPS, and the minimum sustained sequential performance is 10MB/s. IOPS specification of A2 is several times faster than A1. The random read is 4000IOPS, and the random write is 4000IOPS. That means the write performance of A2 is faster than A1 read performance, and the minimum sustained sequential performance is also 10MB/s.

USB Flash Drive

JumpDrive® Fingerprint F35 Flash Drive FAQs
After plugging in my USB flash drive, why doesn’t my computer recognize it? 

Please re-attach the flash drive and run the application again.

Why does the flash drive show less than the total capacity? 

The total capacity is divided up between the public partition and secure partition. Users can change the capacity of the secure partition once their fingerprints have been authenticated.

Can the secure partition of the flash drive be accessed through my smartphone? 

Only the public partition can be accessed through your smartphone.

Why can’t files larger than 4GB be saved to the flash drive? 

The initial format of the F35 is FAT32; you need to re-format it to exFAT when transmitting files larger than 4GB. Please note all files on the drive will be lost if you re-format. However, the fingerprint application itself, will not be erased.

What systems are compatible with the fingerprint application? 

The fingerprint application can be operated in Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10. 

What are the minimum requirements to set up an admin/user account or change the partition size of the drive? 

The fingerprint application requires Windows XP and up.The fingerprint application is required to setup any accounts or changes to the partition size.

If I have an older version of Windows, Mac OS, or Linux, can I still access the public and secure partitions? 

Regular flash drive use is compatible with Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Why does the secure partition disappear after 15 minutes? 

The secure partition is designed to close after 15 minutes of inactivity for security purposes. To re-access the secure partition, simply place an authorized fingerprint on the sensor and it will re-open. 

What type of encryption is used on the Lexar F35 fingerprint flash drive? 

Encryption is based on the 256-bit AES method. The fingerprint data is saved on the flash drive with an exclusive UID produced by FP IC. Since the fingerprint data and fingerprint algorithm is separate, the data saved in the secure partition will be lost if the flash drive is dismantled by force. 

How many chances do I have to enter my administrator password correctly? 

If the user enters an incorrect password more than 254 times in succession, the F35 will start the process of self-destruction. All data in the USB flash drive will be erased, and the F35 can only be recovered by downloading the firmware again.

Why can’t I access the secure partition after placing my finger on the fingerprint sensor several times?

Ensure your fingerprint and sensor are clean and dry. If that doesn’t work, try re-attaching the flash drive.

What does turning the support setting to the “ON” position do?
Turning on the Support function creates a new email to the Lexar support team from the primary email address linked to your device. It will automatically include your app specifications, making it easy for you to send an email to get answers based on your version of the app.

What is required for TouchID to work with my app?

This function will only work with devices with TouchID. TouchID must be available and enabled on your device.

Do I need to toggle the Auto Backup function to the “ON” position in order to do any backups?

The Auto Backup function in the Settings screen will allow automatic backups of photos, contacts, or both, every time your Lexar iOS-compatible product is connected to your device. You can still perform manual backups at any time, regardless of whether the Auto Backup function is turned on or not.

Which files will Auto Backup back up to my Lexar iOS-compatible product?

This function will back up photos and videos that are stored in your camera roll, and contacts stored on your device. It will not back up any files saved in the app’s Internal Storage.

Do the camera setting controls on the Settings screen control my device’s camera?

The functions within Camera Settings on the app’s Settings screen control the settings for videos taken with the app camera only.

Automatic and Manual Backups

When running Auto Backup, will I be given the option to automatically delete the files after update?

No, the automatic backup function does not automatically delete files after backup. To do this, select manual backup of photos.

When doing a manual backup of photos on my iPhone and selecting “Yes” to the message asking whether I want to delete the photos after backup, why does the space available on my Internal Storage display not show a difference?

For safety and in case of accidental deletion, your iOS device keeps a folder in your Photo Album of “Recently Deleted” photos. Your deleted photos will be in this folder for 30 days, at which time they will expire. You can delete them immediately by navigating to the folder and selecting all (or some) of the photos and delete them immediately. Once the photos are removed completely from your device, you will notice the storage space percentage and free under Internal Storage on the Home screen will reflect the updated storage availability.

 

Music

Why can’t I move all of my music files to my external storage?

Only music files not protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) can be managed with the Lexar Media Manager app. Files that are protected may show up on your music file list in the app, but they will appear greyed out, and you will not be able to select those files.

Encryption/Decryption

I’ve lost my password for File Lock (Encrypt) and/or App Lock. How do I retrieve it?

Your password is unique to you and Lexar does not keep a copy of it, so there is no way to retrieve a copy of it when it is lost. It’s a good idea to choose a password you know you’ll remember, or jot it down somewhere so you can access it if you forget it.

 

Additional Resources

I still have questions about the app. Where can I go for help?

¿Cuál es la ventaja en cuanto a velocidad de usar el concentrador con lectores y unidades de almacenamiento?

R. Lexar Professional Workflow ofrece transferencia y copia de seguridad de archivos a velocidades de USB 3.0 al usar un puerto USB 3.0. La efectiva velocidad de transferencia de datos depende totalmente de las especificaciones de su sistema, lo que incluye la velocidad de escritura del disco duro, la velocidad del procesador, la memoria y el sistema operativo (sin mencionar la velocidad de lectura de las tarjetas desde las cuales transfiere los datos). Todas estas variables hacen que determinar una valoración de rendimiento real sea difícil. Sin embargo, puede prever experimentar el mejor rendimiento posible cuando use una computadora bien equipada y una tarjeta con velocidades de transferencia rápidas.

Al usar el concentrador Thunderbolt 2 puede prever un rendimiento todavía más rápido. En teoría, los límites se establecen para el USB 3.0 a los 5 gbps y para Thunderbolt 2 a los 20 gbps. Por lo tanto, generalmente puede prever experimentar un rendimiento hasta cuatro veces mejor, según todos los factores que se mencionan previamente. El rendimiento puede variar ampliamente de acuerdo con la velocidad de la tarjeta y las especificaciones del sistema de su computadora.

¿Por qué es mejor incluir un concentrador en mi configuración en lugar de usar un lector o una unidad de almacenamiento independiente de una sola ranura?

R. La principal ventaja es que ahorrará tiempo con la capacidad de transferir y hacer copias de seguridad de sus datos de múltiples tarjetas de una sola vez (transferencia simultánea). Con un lector de una sola ranura únicamente puede transferir contenido de una tarjeta a la vez (transferencia consecutiva). Con el concentrador cargado completamente con su elección de lectores o unidades de almacenamiento, puede descargar su trabajo más rápidamente. Esto le permite seguir editando, compartiendo y eventualmente capturando mucho más rápido.

¿Puedo combinar cualquier lector y unidad de almacenamiento que yo quiera?

R. Sí, esa es una de las más grandes ventajas de usar la línea Professional Workflow; usted puede diseñar una configuración personalizada que se adapte a sus necesidades específicas. Por ejemplo, cabe la posibilidad de que una persona que use una cámara Nikon D4 desee dos lectores CompactFlash (CF) y dos lectores XQD, mientras que una persona que use una cámara Canon 5D Mark III puede requerir tres lectores CF y un lector SD UHS-I. Mientras que otros pueden elegir cargar sus concentradores con una combinación de lectores de tarjeta y unidades de almacenamiento.

¿Para quién está diseñada esta línea?

R R. Esta línea de productos se creó específicamente para profesionales de fotografía y video, y entusiastas. Es una opción excelente para aquellos que capturan imágenes y filman videos con múltiples tarjetas o que usan múltiples cámaras o videograbadoras. Con la capacidad que en la actualidad tienen las cámaras para capturar imágenes RAW, fotografías de alta resolución y archivos de video de alta definición HD, 3D y 4K, existe una necesidad de tener tarjetas de mayor capacidad y más rápidas, así como de obtener una transferencia y copia de seguridad más rápidas de grandes cantidades de datos de múltiples tarjetas. Ahora esas funciones se pueden hacer simultáneamente.

Setup and Use

¿Puedo usar el adaptador de suministro de energía incluido con mi Professional Workflow HR1 con el HR2?

R. No, el concentrador Professional Workflow HR2 requiere más energía, por lo que viene con una fuente de suministro de energía mayor. No mezcle las fuentes de suministro de energía de las diferentes unidades.

Can I use the readers without the hub?

Yes, each reader package includes a USB cable so you can use them on their own. This makes them an excellent on-the-go solution.

¿Puedo usar los lectores y las unidades de almacenamiento sin el concentrador?

R. Sí, cada paquete de lector y unidad de almacenamiento incluye un cable USB para que pueda usarlos por separado. Esto los convierte en una excelente solución siempre disponible.

¿Cómo opera la función de enlace en cadena al usar el concentrador Professional Workflow HR2?

R. Para enlazar convenientemente en cadena el concentrador en cualquier parte de su línea, puede usar los 2 puertos Thunderbolt que se encuentran en la parte posterior del concentrador. Simplemente conecte uno de los cables Thunderbolt 2 del concentrador a su computadora o a otro dispositivo y luego, conecte el concentrador al cable Thunderbolt 2 del siguiente dispositivo, por ejemplo, un monitor o un disco duro. La tecnología Thunderbolt 2 le permite enlazar en cadena hasta seis dispositivos a un puerto de su computadora. Para asegurarse de obtener el mejor rendimiento, tenga en cuenta ubicar el concentrador en el comienzo de la cadena, más cerca de su computadora.

¿Por qué las luces LED de mis lectores se encienden de forma intermitente?

R. Esto indica que el lector está en el proceso de transferir datos de la tarjeta a la computadora. Cuando las luces de su lector se enciendan de forma intermitente, no extraiga la tarjeta ni el lector del concentrador.

¿Se recomienda alguna configuración específica para lectores cuando se usan los concentradores?

R. Probablemente sea recomendable que los profesionales de fotografía y video que capturen imágenes o filmen videos exclusivamente con cámaras basadas en CompactFlash (CF) compren cuatro lectores CF. Las personas que usen cámaras Nikon D4S probablemente quieran dos lectores CF y dos lectores XQD (suponiendo que usan las dos ranuras en sus cámaras). Los usuarios de Canon DSLR probablemente deseen una combinación de lectores CF y lectores SD UHS-II (debido a que algunas cámaras Canon suelen usar ambos factores de forma). Muchos profesionales de fotografía usan cámaras basadas en CF como cámara principal y una cámara compacta para uso general y exploración. Estas personas probablemente también deseen una combinación de lectores CF y lectores SD en su concentrador..

¿Para qué se usa el conector USB tipo B?

R. Este conector es duradero y brinda una inserción y extracción sólida y dinámica de los lectores al conectarse y desconectarse al concentrador.

Troubleshooting

¿El concentrador Professional Workflow HR1 o HR2 necesita estar enchufado a un suministro de alimentación de CA para poder funcionar?

R. Sí, para que el concentrador funcione correctamente debe estar enchufado. El puerto USB en una computadora no brinda suficiente energía para que el dispositivo funcione.

Why am I getting a series of ‘Drive removed incorrectly’ messages after my Mac wakes from hibernation?

Occasionally, the hub may not be recognized after waking. If this happens, please unplug your HR1 or HR2 hub from your Mac and plug it back in. If this doesn’t resolve the issue, you may need to restart your computer.

No se incluye un adaptador de suministro de energía que cumpla con la normativa establecida en mi país. ¿Cómo puedo usar el concentrador Professional Workflow?

R. Hemos trabajado diligentemente para brindar todos los adaptadores específicos para regiones posibles, pero no pudimos cumplir con las necesidades de todos los países. Si está en una de esas regiones, puede comprar un convertidor para viajes que cumpla con las necesidades de los adaptadores de suministro de energía internacionales de su país para usarlo con el adaptador de suministro de energía incluido con su concentrador Professional Workflow Reader HR1 o HR2. Asegúrese de que el adaptador que compre cumpla con los requisitos específicos de los adaptadores de suministro de energía de su país.

¿Por qué cuando uso uno de los concentradores Lexar Professional Workflow aparece un mensaje de error en mi computadora que indica que no tengo suficiente energía para transferir archivos?

R. Este error ocurre cuando el cable de suministro de energía no está conectado al concentrador Professional Workflow HR1 o HR2, o bien la fuente de suministro de energía no está conectada a un enchufe de pared o a una fuente de alimentación. Para resolver el error, conecte correctamente el concentrador.

General Frequently Asked Questions
Why is memory important to digital cameras?

As picture quality and resolutions on digital cameras have improved, the need to save and store larger photo and video files has increased. Earlier versions of digital cameras often featured built-in, non-expandable memory for storing pictures and video. Memory capacity of these cameras could be reached quickly, forcing users to download pictures constantly to their computers or erase pictures before taking another photograph. This is very inconvenient for users who want to use their cameras without having a computer nearby.

Today’s leading digital camera manufacturers typically feature removable digital film cards for capturing, storing, and swapping images. Popular removable memory solutions include SD, microSD, CompactFlash, and CFast. Typically, camera manufacturers include a minimum-capacity card with the camera, just enough memory to provide a good out-of-the-box experience for the user. As the capacity of that card is reached, either the user must download the photos to a computer, erase pictures, or replace the card to continue taking pictures. That’s why for many typical picture-taking situations like vacations, weddings, or sporting events, the digital photographer needs more digital film.

What are the popular types of digital film today?

Digital film uses non-volatile flash memory, meaning it does not require power to store the pictures taken. Flash memory technology is ideal for applications that require portability and ruggedness. There are three main types of flash memory used for digital cameras today:
SD, microSD, CompactFlash, and CFast formats.

Secure Digital (SD): The size of a postage stamp, SD cards are compact and flexible for use in multiple consumer electronic devices. Its ability to deliver high performance allows consumers to quickly capture photo and video files in a reliable and easy-to-use format.

microSD: The smallest memory card that can be bought, which is about a quarter of the size of a normal-sized SD card. microSD cards are used in mobile phones, tablets, action cameras, drones and other mobile devices.

CompactFlash: A small form factor (about the size of a matchbook) that combines non-volatile storage, high-capacity options and industry-standard compatibility, which is absolutely essential for digital cameras and handheld computing devices. Because they are designed to the guidelines set by the CompactFlash Association, a base-level assurance of compatibility has been set between all-certified CompactFlash cards and any CompactFlash-compliant device.

CFast: The latest evolution of card format from the CompactFlash Association and provides a higher maximum transfer rate than CompactFlash® cards. CFast cards are similar in size to CompactFlash cards, but do not have any pins which can bend in the connector. The format was primarily designed to support the capabilities of next-generation of camcorders and DSLR cameras.

What is the CompactFlash Association?

The CompactFlash Association (CFA) was established in 1995, as a non-profit, mutually beneficial industry association. The CFA’s premise is that CompactFlash technology will result in the intro-duction of a new class of advanced, small, lightweight, low-powered mobile products that will significantly increase the productivity and enhance the lifestyle of millions of people. CompactFlash provides the capability to easily transfer all types of digital information and software between a large variety of digital systems.

Is performance important when talking about digital film?

As digital camera applications, camera resolutions, and picture and video file sizes continue to grow, the ability to both WRITE and READ large files have become critical performance requirement. Improved WRITE performance can significantly reduce the waiting time before another photograph can be taken (“image storage time”). Improved READ performance can significantly reduce the waiting time for photo and video files to be transferred to your computer–saving time and improving digital photography “workflow.”

Lexar SD, CompactFlash and CFast cards significantly reduce file transfer time to your computer AND the time a picture file can be written to the card. While actual performance will vary between camera models, Lexar offers high-speed performance so you never miss the memories you want to save: a baby’s smile, a wedding kiss, or any other precious moment.

What does 633x, 667x, 1000x, 1066x, 1667x, 1800x, 2000x and 3500x (1x=150KB/s) performance mean?

Because digital film performance is so important in capturing the right picture at the right moment, Lexar has implemented an easy-to-understand system to indicate the speed at which the card is capable of storing data. The system is adopted from the CD-ROM industry, in which the performance of CD-ROM drives are rated in “x” increments, where 1x is equal to a sustained write speed capability of 150 kilobytes per second (KB/s). Lexar will continue to introduce faster products with greater “x” ratings, giving consumers an easy way to recognize the latest in high-performance digital photography.

633x = Up to 95MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower
667x = Up to 100MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower
1066x = Up to 160MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower
1667x = Up to 250MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower
1800x = Up to 270MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower
2000x = Up to 300MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower
3500x = Up to 525MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower

¿Qué son los sistemas de archivos FAT32, NTFS, ExFAT y Extended Journaled?

FAT32, ExFAT, NTFS y Extended Journaled son algunos de los ejemplos más comunes de sistemas de archivos, que son métodos mediante los cuales los datos se disponen en un dispositivo de almacenamiento. Para explicarlo de forma muy sencilla, las diferencias son las siguientes:
FAT32: el tamaño máximo del archivo es de 4 GB (gigabytes) y el tamaño máximo del dispositivo de almacenamiento puede ser tan bajo como 2 TB (terabytes). Compatible con sistemas Mac y Windows. Se utiliza normalmente para sistemas operativos antiguos y dispositivos antiguos.
ExFAT: una nueva iteración de FAT32, que requiere nuevos dispositivos y sistemas operativos, pero que elimina con eficacia los límites de tamaño de archivo y los límites de tamaño del dispositivo (ExFAT admite cientos o miles de terabytes).
NTFS: específico de Windows , aunque se admite de forma limitada en OS X. Por lo general se utiliza en un disco duro fijo, en lugar de en un dispositivo de almacenamiento extraíble. Al igual que ExFAT, tiene limitaciones de tamaño de archivo menos restrictivas, pero debido a su estado de sistema de archivos basado principalmente en Windows, NTFS puede entrar en conflicto con hardware que no sea de PC.
Extended Journaled, por lo general específico de Apple cuando se trata de productos de consumo, y tiene compatibilidad limitada fuera de las plataformas OS X/iOS. Se utiliza generalmente como una unidad OS de Apple, con el almacenamiento extraíble formateado como FAT32/ExFAT en su lugar.
Para obtener la mejor compatibilidad e interoperabilidad de su producto de almacenamiento Lexar en varios dispositivos (especialmente dispositivos que no sean de PC, como lectores de medios incorporados en televisores, reproductores de Blu-Ray, DVR, etc.), recomendamos formatear su dispositivo como ExFAT o FAT32. Existen hardwares específicos que pueden requerir otros sistemas, incluyendo otros que no nombrados en el presente documento. Para obtener más información sobre las necesidades de un dispositivo en concreto, consulte la documentación del dispositivo o pida asistencia del fabricante para obtener más información.

Lexar SAFE S3000 and SAFE S3000 FIPS FAQs - Discontinued
What does SAFE stand for?

Secure Access For Enterprise

Why does Lexar offer multiple SAFE solutions?

Lexar® JumpDrive SAFE S3000 FIPS is specifically engineered for government, military, and enterprise users who require ultra high security to meet agency directives Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 is designed for users looking for enterprise-level security that is scaled to meet the budget and performance demands of small businesses.

What makes Lexar JumpDrive SAFE unique?

Lexar JumpDrive SAFE combines 3 key elements to provide a secure flash drive.

A) Hardware-based AES 256-bit Encryption on all stored data
B) Tamper-proof smart card to manage all security critical computations
C) Rugged metal housing to protect against physical damage

What does FIPS stand for?

Federal Information Processing Standards. Publicly announced standards developed by the United States Federal government

Why does the Gemalto brand name appear on the application graphical user interface (GUI)?

Lexar JumpDrive SAFE is jointly developed by Lexar and Gemalto, combining Lexar’s secure solid state storage technology and Gemalto’s .NET smart card technology.

What is the difference between the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 and Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 FIPS?
Does the encryption reduce the drive performance?

No, the hardware-based 256-bit AES engine performs on-the-fly encryption and does not impact performance.

Do I need to install a driver and/or software for Lexar JumpDrive SAFE?

No, the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE is fully plug and play and does not require any drivers or software to be installed on the host computer.

Do I need administrator privileges (on Operating Systems) for Lexar JumpDrive SAFE to work?

No, the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE does not require administrator privileges to work.

How does encryption protect my data?

All drive content is encrypted with the NIST standard AES encryption algorithm and stored in ciphered form on the flash memory. The encryption key used to perform the encryption is stored securely on the embedded tamper-proof smart card, protecting it from unauthorized access. Without the knowledge of the encryption key, it is exceedingly difficult to extract the data from the cipher, even if one is able to disassemble the drive to access the flash memory.

Why is hardware-based encryption more secure?

A software-based encryption runs on top, and utilizes the shared memory space of the computer operating system to store such contents as encryption keys. Other processes on the operating system may be able to access the same memory space, and in so doing, compromise security. A hardware-based encryption uses the memory space within the device itself, eliminating the risk of access by other processes external to the flash drive.

How does the smart card protect my data?

The smart card provides the following protection:

Tamper-proof storage: Smart cards provide a means of securely storing data on the card. This data can only be accessed through the smart card operating system with authorized access rights. This feature is utilized to store the encryption key, the login password, and the other security parameters.

Isolation of security-critical computations: Operations involving authentication, key generation, and storage are isolated from other parts of the device and host computer that do not have a “need to know.” These operations are all performed on the smart card only.

Strong Authentication: The smart card blocks access to JumpDrive SAFE after a predefined set of login attempts have exceeded. The smart card deploys a stringent PKI-based challenge-response process for authentication. This prohibits any unauthorized access to the flash encryption keys and protects the authorized user. The smart card protects against password dictionary attacks through an increasing delay after each incorrect attempt (before the next login can be attempted.)

Why is smart card-based authentication more secure than other methods of authentication?

The secure microcontrollers used in Gemalto smart cards have security features manufactured into the ICs that thwart attackers from accessing any sensitive information that is stored in the card. Gemalto smart card technology is extremely difficult to duplicate or forge and has built-in tamper protection. Smart card chips include a variety of hardware and software capabilities that detect and react to tampering attempts and help counter possible attacks. This reflects in Common Criteria level EAL 5+ certification achieved by the Gemalto smart card micro-controller. In addition, smart card technology provides secure hardware-based key generation and storage and standard PKI-based challenge-response process to unblock access. Gemalto smart card technology provides security benefits at a number of levels that other hardware-based authentication mechanisms cannot match.

How does the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 behave if it comes under a password dictionary attack?

The Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 permits up to 5 login attempts. The Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 also introduces an increasing delay after each incorrect attempt before the next login can be attempted. Once the attempts are exceeded, the device rejects further login attempts until the user provides the correct answer to the security question.

Are copies of the password and cryptographic key saved on the host computer?

No. Both the password and cryptographic key are stored securely only on the smart card.

What happens if I forget my password?

The Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 allows password reset once the correct answer is provided to the security question. A new password must be set but no data is erased. If however a user forgets the answer to the security question and exceeds 5 login attempts, the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 becomes permanently disabled and cannot be recovered.

Does the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 perform any operations that leave traces on the host computer?

No. All operations are contained within the drive, leaving no trace on the host machine.

How are the encryption keys generated?

The encryption keys are generated by the smart card’s Random Number Generator (RNG) and are stored securely in the smart card’s non-volatile memory. The keys are not stored in the flash memory or the host computer, or transmitted across the USB port.

How is the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 password protected?

The login password is hashed before being transmitted to Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000, and then stored in the tamper-proof smart card. The password validation uses challenge-response process combining with zero-knowledge transfer mechanism. The authentication is performed on the smart card only; there is no way to retrieve the stored password from the smart card. Access is granted only when password has been validated by the smart card. If login attempts are exceeded, the device rejects further login attempts.

Does the Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 support complex passwords?

The JumpDrive SAFE S3000 supports complex passwords, but does not enforce it. The main reason for a complex password is to deter software-based password dictionary attacks. The SAFE S3000 defeats such attacks with the smart card. The smart card permits only a limited number of login attempts and introduces an increasing delay after each incorrect attempt before the next login can be attempted.

How do I get the login application to start automatically?

Description
When you insert your JumpDrive SAFE S3000 – FIPS to your PC, the login application should run automatically. However, this cannot happen under the following circumstances:

    • The JumpDrive SAFE S3000 – FIPS is already connected when you start the PC or reboot the PC.
    • The PC is running Windows 2000
    • You are logged on to Windows as a guest.

Solution 2
If AutoPlay is already activated, you will need to start the application manually by double-clicking the file ”JumpDriveS3000_PC.exe” in the JumpDrive drive.

Why does a “reboot PC” message appear the first time I insert the JumpDrive SAFE to my PC?

Description 
After inserting the JumpDrive SAFE S3000 to your computer, Windows displays a message asking you to restart your PC. This may happen when a new JumpDrive SAFE is inserted for the first time

Solution 
There is no need to restart the PC. Click Cancel to close the message.

I do not see drive letter assigned to the JumpDrive SAFE. What should I do?

Le périphérique ne fonctionne pas sous Windows

En cas de défaillance d’un périphérique de stockage, et ceci indépendamment du matériel ou des interfaces auxquels il est connecté, les problèmes les plus courants proviennent de la mauvaise déconnexion du périphérique depuis l’ordinateur ou le lecteur de cartes, d’une corruption, d’une mauvaise affectation de lettre au lecteur ou d’une erreur de pilote.

Avec le périphérique connecté, faites un clic droit sur le coin inférieur gauche (ou bouton « Démarrer ») du bureau afin d’ouvrir le menu d’accès rapide, puis sélectionnez le gestionnaire de périphériques. Sous Windows 7 et versions antérieures, ouvrez le menu Démarrer, recherchez le gestionnaire de périphériques, puis sélectionnez-le.

– Cliquez sur le symbole « + » à côté d’Unités de disque, Autres périphériques et Contrôleur de bus USB.
– Vérifiez si le périphérique de stockage Lexar apparaît à l’un de ces emplacements.
– Si le périphérique apparaît, vérifiez la présence d’un point d’exclamation (!) ou d’un point d’interrogation (?) jaune à côté de lui.
– En cas de présence d’un point d’exclamation (!) ou d’un point d’interrogation (?) jaune à côté du périphérique, faites un clic droit sur ce dernier et sélectionnez Supprimer/désinstaller. Débranchez et rebranchez le périphérique. L’ordinateur devrait le reconnaître automatiquement, s’il dispose des pilotes appropriés.

En l’absence d’un point d’exclamation (!) ou d’un point d’interrogation (?) jaune à côté du périphérique de stockage Lexar, vous devrez confirmer/modifier la lettre de lecteur affectée à la carte mémoire/clé USB JumpDrive.

Vous devez disposer des privilèges d’administrateur local sur votre ordinateur afin de modifier les lettres des disques sous Windows.

Faites un clic droit sur le coin inférieur gauche (ou bouton « Démarrer ») du bureau afin d’ouvrir le menu d’accès rapide, puis sélectionnez le Gestionnaire de disques. Sous Windows 7 et versions antérieures, ouvrez le menu Démarrer et recherchez « Créer et formater des partitions de disque dur ».

– À cette étape, votre écran apparaîtra comme divisé en deux parties séparées. Veuillez agrandir la fenêtre et vous concentrer sur la partie inférieure. Vous remarquerez une liste indiquant des mentions similaires à ce qui suit : « Disque 0, Sain, Principal, Partition active ». Il s’agit de votre disque dur. Vous constaterez également que d’autres lecteurs s’affichent ici, comme les disques de récupération, d’éventuels disques durs externes et vos lecteurs de CD/DVD.

– Veuillez vérifier les autres numéros de disques. Par exemple, votre carte mémoire ou votre clé USB JumpDrive pourrait s’afficher comme étant le Disque 1, Amovible. L’entrée indiquera également une capacité proche de celle de votre carte mémoire. Par exemple, une carte mémoire de 4 Go devrait afficher une valeur située autour de 3,7 Go.

– Si le périphérique ne s’affiche pas ou indique « Aucun média », le contrôleur du périphérique ou sa connexion à votre ordinateur sont défaillants. Essayez de brancher le périphérique de stockage à un autre ordinateur ou sur un autre port, et si le problème persiste, veuillez nous contacter pour recevoir plus d’assistance. Si le disque s’affiche comme Non alloué, votre partition a été endommagée et doit être reformatée pour vous permettre de continuer à utiliser le périphérique.

– Si aucun des cas ci-dessus ne s’applique, faites un clic droit sur le périphérique et sélectionnez « Modifier la lettre de lecteur et les chemins d’accès », puis cliquez sur « Modifier » et assignez-lui la lettre de lecteur « Z ». Cliquez ensuite sur « OK », « Oui » et « OK » à nouveau.

Si aucune des procédures ci-dessus ne résout votre problème, veuillez nous contacter pour recevoir plus d’assistance.

What are the file systems FAT32, NTFS, ExFAT, and Extended Journaled?

FAT32, ExFAT, NTFS, and Extended Journaled are some of the most common examples of file systems, which are methods by which data is arranged on a storage device. Very simply, the differences are as follows:

FAT32 – 4GB (gigabyte) maximum file size and maximum storage device size can be as low as 2TB (terabytes). Compatible with both Mac and Windows. Typically used for legacy Operating Systems and older devices.

ExFAT – A newer iteration of FAT32, requiring newer devices and operating systems, but effectively removing the file size limits and device size limits (ExFAT supports hundreds or thousands of terabytes).

NTFS – Windows-specific, though has limited support in OS X. Typically used on an fixed hard drive, rather than removable storage. Like ExFAT, has less restrictive file size limitations, but due to it’s status as a primarily Windows-based file system, NTFS can conflict with non-PC hardware.

Extended Journaled – Mostly Apple-specific when dealing with consumer products, and has limited support outside OS X/iOS platforms. Typically used as an Apple OS drive, with removable storage being formatted as FAT32/ExFAT instead.

For best compatibility and interoperability of your Lexar storage product across multiple devices (especially non-PC devices, such as media readers built into TVs, Blu-Ray players, DVRs, etc.), we recommend formatting your device as ExFAT or FAT32. Specific hardware may require other file systems, however, including ones not listed here. For more information on a given device’s needs, please see your device’s documentation or manufacturer support for more details.
