I/OMagic announced that it has launched the first ever internal 52x32x52 CD-RW drive with an embedded 7-n-1 Media Card Reader. The new drive combines the capabilities of a CD-RW and a media card reader into one, space saving unit -- all for an introductory price point of just $79.99.
"The 52x32x52 CD-RW with 7-n-1 Media Card Reader is different. There is no other drive on the market that combines an internal CD-RW drive with a 7-n-1 media card reader," said Tony Andrews, vice president of Engineering and Product Development for I/OMagic Corp. "And it is the perfect solution for a crowded desktop. It uses less space, it's lightning fast, it easily stores digital photographs and backs up audio and video files."
The 52x32x52 CD-RW with 7-n-1 Media Card Reader writes CD-R media at 52x and CD-RW at 32x, and reads CDs at up to 52x speeds and includes automatic media selection for CD, CD-R and CD-RW. The 7-n-1 card reader supports Compact Flash (CF), IBM Micro Drive, Multimedia Card (MMC), Secure Digital (SD), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO, and Smart Media (SM). The drive is Windows XP, 2000, Me and 98SE Plug 'n Play compatible and uses a USB connection on the user's motherboard.
The 52x32x52 CD-RW with 7-n-1 Media Card Reader also comes with mastering software that allows users to create MP3, audio, video and data CDs.
The I/OMagic internal 52x32x52 with 7-n-1 Media Card Reader has an introductory price of $79.99 and will begin shipping in September of 2003.
