Both DVR-112 and DVR-212 series are also expected to come in LightScribe-enabled versions. The LightScribe PATA DVR-112C and the SATA DVR-212C are expected later in March and April 2007.
But before then, Pioneer fans should expect the DVR-111C (LightScribe model). The drive has passed HP's LightScribe verification and currently Pioneer's engineers are making the final tweaks to the drive before its release, early 2007.
Pioneer will also release its second generation of Blu-Ray drives, the Pioneer BDR-202. The drive will have a SATA interface and it is expected to support DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, DVD-RAM and CD-R/RW writing support. Although Pioneer has not yet confirmed it, the BDR-202 drive is expected to support 4x recording for BD-R media. Availability is expected in April 2007.
