PowerBurn is similar in function to SmartBurn. It prevents buffer underruns and does all the write control stuff.

To make it even more confusing Sony also describes the technology on drives like the CRX220 as being "PowerBurn Compliant". It's not actually Sony's PowerBurn, but something similar in purpose and functionality.
