SAN JOSE, CA (January 21, 2002) – Addonics Technologies today announced its fastest and most flexible DVD player/CD burner with the release of its Mobile DVD/CDRW drive.

The new Addonics Mobile DVD/CDRW drive offers value and performance with its 16x DVD player, 48x write/24x rewrite CDRW burner, and 48x CD-ROM. The 24x rewrite is the fastest rewrite speed among all the CDRWs in the market.

The new drive is also one of the fastest external combo drives available, which enables users to view feature-length DVD movies, access DVD/CD material, burn their own audio/data CDs, as well as back up and archive their computer data at the fastest speeds.

The Addonics Mobile DVD/CDRW can record data to CDRW media in five popular modes: Track at Once, Multi-session, Disc at Once, Session at Once, and Packet Writing. The drive is also compatible with seven different multimedia formats, including: CD-ROM, CD-ROM XA, CD-I, CD-DA, CD-Bridge, CD-Extra, and Video CD. Depending on the drive interface used the Mobile DVD/CDRW has a maximum data transfer rate from 600-7200 KB/sec and an access speed of 110 m/sec in CD mode and 120m/sec in DVD mode.

The Mobile DVD/CDRW is also the most flexible drive in its class with its interchangeable interface cable. Users can connect to either USB 2.0 or 1.1, FireWire ports or CardBus / PCMCIA slots on any computer by switching to the appropriate Addonics interface cable. Addonics bundles the drive with a choice of interface cable, CD mastering software, MPEG-2 decoding software for DVD movie playback, AC/DC adapter, user guide, and the option to purchase other interface cables separately.

Wonder what this drive will be. The only Addonics CDRW drive I've seen was an 8x drive, and seemed to be a Philips design but it wasn't made by Philips (although it might have been an Artec, who made Philips-based drives back then). I've seen tonnes of sound cards and the like by them though.

I bet they're using the Samsung combo drive.
