2 August, 1999
Tokyo--Toshiba Corporation today announced that it has entered the CD-R/RW market and launched the multi-functional CD-R/RW drive that can write to CD-R/RW media and read DVD titles. The SD-R1002 incorporates a newly developed, high performance pick-up head that allows it to read and write CD-R/RW and to read DVD.
The new drive offers maximum 4x write speed to CD-R and CD-RW discs, maximum 4x speed playback of DVD-ROM, and 24x speed playback of CD-ROM. It incorporates an ATAPI interface that optimizes it for integration in desktop PCs.
With the multi-functional SD-R1002, Toshiba, an industry leader in CD-ROM and DVD technology and products, has united in a single drive the four functions increasingly demanded of optical drives for PCs: support for CD-ROM; reading both DVD-ROM and DVD-Video; writing to CD-R; and rewriting to CD-RW. The SD-R1002 drive allows users to gain the freedom to run software stored on CD-ROM, back-up high-volume data and develop original discs on CD-R/RW, and enjoy watching movies on DVD and music on CD.
