New CD-RW drives from LiteOn

Four new products have been announced from LiteOn, the manufacturer of often very inexpensive drives. The LTR-21123S/H is a 32/12/40-speed drive. Of course, it offers techniques to avoid buffer underruns, called SMART-Burn at LiteOn.

The support of the so-called Mt. Rainier standards, which should make it possible to write CD-RWs directly from the operating system, without additional effort in the form of external programs. The second innovation is the LTC-24161, a CD/DVD combo drive with 24/12/40/16 times the speed (CDR, CDRW, CD, DVD respectively). It also supports SMART-Burn and the Mt.Rainier format. The LSC-24081 is a slim-line combo drive with 24/10/24/8 speed and also support for SMART-Burn and Mt.Rainier. And last but not least, there will also be a portable drive called the LXR-32111U that supports 32/12/40 speeds via USB 2.0.
