Toshiba Europe GmbH Storage Device Division today announced the SD-R5002 DVD-R/RW, a high quality optical disk drive that comes complete with everything needed to create a comprehensive and effective home movie-making kit. The SD-R5002 is one of the fastest combination rewriteable DVD drives available. It can also read DVD-Video, DVD-ROM, DVD-R and DVD-RW as well as CDs.

"This is the finest combination read/write DVD drive available today and the result of months of extensive development and design work," said James Armour, European Engineering Expert, Toshiba Europe. "The SD-R5002 underscores Toshiba Europe's contention that only the DVD minus standard can deliver the compatibility levels that today's customers are demanding."

Toshiba Europe's DVD optical drives are developed using the DVD- standard, which enables greater performance characteristics to be incorporated into product designs.
