Nope same thing the dealers in the US use- a DVD or CD. The ones they send the dealers are replaced every few months and apparently some enterprising techs have a side business selling the old ones usually on ebay...Bought my first one back in about 96 and have bought several since whenever I get a new Ford..
The only catch is they expire- no problem> you can change the date on your computer and use it just fine...I even have an old laptop that is used just for that- keep it on August 2015 for my 2015 DVD.
If you want a genuine not expired one they are $177 at Helminc.com, Ford's official service info vendor.
