Toshiba Storage Device Division (SDD) announced enhancements to its optical lineup with four new
products, including the SD-R6572M, a slim-line optical drive equipped with the LightScribe
Direct Disc Labeling technology that now includes DVD+R double layer capability.

layer media capabilities. Developed by HP, LightScribe technology enables computer users to
