Verbatim, a developer of CDs and DVDs in a variety of formats for data storage and other uses, is moving into the flash drive storage business.

Verbatim said Monday that it would produce flash drive devices that link to personal computers through USB ports by this fall. The Store ‘n Go devices are designed to contain data, applications and personal computer settings.

Verbatim said it would utilize technology developed by the company known as U3, which is based in California.
