Sony upgrades to 4x DVD+RW writing with the new DRU-510A

Sony introduced two new Dual RW drives that support 4X DVD+RW recording. Sony's next-generation Dual RW drives, the internal DRU-510A and the external DRX-510UL, are the company's first DVD+R/DVD+RW drives capable of recording to compatible 4X DVD+RW discs at up to 4X speeds, which should enable users to burn a 4X DVD+RW certified disc in about 15 minutes.

The drives also support up to 4X DVD+R and DVD-R recording, as well as 2X DVD-R, 24X CD-R and 16X CD-RW recording. The recordable DVD format can store up to 4.7 gigabytes of digital video, images or data. Equivalent to that of seven CD discs.

Like their current Sony DVD recorders, the DRU-510A and DRX-510UL combine the DVD-rewritable (DVD+RW/-RW) formats with the DVD write-once (DVD+R/-R) formats. By allowing consumers to write to all of the popular DVD and CD standards, Sony's Dual RW drives may eliminate the confusion and risk associated with DVD recording.

The internal DRU-510A drive comes with an ATAPI interface for easy installation inside a PC, while the external DRX-510UL drive features both an i.LINK (IEEE 1394) and a hi-speed USB (USB 2.0) interface for simple set-up and maximum flexibility.

Both Dual RW drives come with DVD/CD burning and video editing, authoring and mastering software. The software suite also includes backup and packet-writing software for users to create custom backup discs of up to 4.7 gigabytes of audio, video and data, along with software to organize music files on a PC and record them onto a CD or DVD.

The software suite includes:

VERITAS RecordNow DX mastering software that allows users to create custom CDs and DVDs, in addition to creating backup copies of CDs or DVD-ROMs
VERITAS Simple Backup which is backup and data recovery software that provides users backup and disaster recovery capabilities
VERITAS DLA packet-writing software that enables users to format, drag-and-drop or delete files similar to a hard drive or floppy disk
Sonic Solutions MyDVD authoring software that allows users to transfer home videos to customized DVD-video and Video CD discs
Arcsoft ShowBiz video editing software for customizing video footage with easy import/export to and from the Sonic Solutions MyDVD software
CyberLink PowerDVD DVD-Video playing software that enables interactive viewing of both DVD-Video and Video CD discs on a PC
MUSICMATCH Jukebox personal music system to play, record, organize and discover new music with a guide to thousands of streams of personalized music programming.

Availability, Pricing and Warranty
The internal DRU-510A Dual RW drive will be available in early May for an estimated retail price of under $350, and the external DRX-510UL model will be available in June for less than $430. Sony DVD/CD rewritable drives are sold through resellers and retailers nationwide, mail order catalogs, and select online shopping sites, including SonyStyle.com.
