Micro Solutions' New Backpack Triple Play Cd-Rewriter is First With


Micro Solutions has raised the bar on external CD-RWs with its new 8x8x32 backpack triple play cd-rewriter. Introduced today, this drive is the first and only external cd-rewriter currently on the market to incorporate conveniently and cost-effectively in one box the three most prominent computer I/O interfaces - USB port, parallel port and PC Card. In addition, it supports an 8x write speed on Pentium processor-based notebooks through the PC Card slot, making it the fastest external CD-RW available that doesn't require any additional hardware to be installed.

Micro Solutions' new 8x8x32 backpack triple play cd-rewriter attaches externally to desktop and notebook computers for creating data CDs, customized music CDs and backups of important files or entire hard drives. It supports an 8x write speed on Pentium processor-based notebooks via the PC Card interface, while offering the maximum 4x write speeds using the USB or parallel port connections on other desktop Pentium computers. Micro Solutions' approach of ``no cards to install'' means the triple play cd-rewriter is plug-and-play, so users do not need to open a desktop or laptop and install additional hardware. The drive also is hot pluggable on all ports, so those with Windows 95(a), 98, Me and 2000 can attach and detach the drive without needing to restart their computers.


``Our parallel port connectivity gives customers extra benefits,'' stated Barron. ``First, when a backpack cd-rewriter is connected to a PC's parallel port, our patented smart printer-pass-through port allows users to plug their printer into the backpack, so they don't lose the use of their printer. Then, unlike USB-only cd-rewriters, a backpack can be used as emergency recovery device. Many emergency recovery and disk imaging programs run under DOS, which isn't supported by USB. With backpack cd-rewriters, users can switch to the parallel port for their emergency recovery procedure. This is a real exclusive feature.'' Easy CD Creator and DirectCD software by Adaptec Corp. (now known as Roxio) come with the triple play backpack cd-rewriter. These programs make creating music and data CDs as simple as clicking on icons or dragging and dropping files.

The 8x8x32 backpack triple play cd-rewriter (model number 193250) has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $269. Another model with all the same connectivity options, the 8x4x32 backpack triple play cd-rewriter (model number 193200), has an MSRP of $249.
