Toshiba unveils new DVD recordable drives for mobile computers

Toshiba Storage Device Division (SDD) today introduced two slim-line optical disk drives that provide higher media recording speeds for mobile computers, and allow PC manufacturers to deliver better functionality to professionals on the go. The SD-R6112 slim DVD recordable drive enables mobile users to take advantage of 2x DVD recording, while the SD-R9012 super slim CD-RW/DVD-ROM combination drive delivers 16x CD recording speeds in a petite 128mm x 9.5mm x 126.1mm format.

Toshiba's new optical disk drives help OEM's continue to build lighter, thinner and more functional mobile computers even as some system components, like display screens, grow larger. As long as computer users transition to mobile PCs increases, the demand for high desktop performance in a mobile package is growing.

The Toshiba SD-R6112 drive supports 2x DVD-R, 1x DVD-RW, 1x DVD-RAM read, 16x CD-R and 10x CD-RW, allowing users to take advantage of multiple technologies in a single drive. The SD-R9012 supports 8x DVD-ROM, 16x CD-R and 10x CD-RW. Both drives include buffer underrun technology and a 2MB buffer. The tray loading drives are also shock resistant and feature low energy consumption, making them ideal for laptop design.

Toshiba's SD-R6112 and SD-R9012 slim-line drives will begin shipping to mobile PC manufacturers in late August.
