Utilizing the the Smart Power Technology power management solution, a single USB cable connection is sufficient for running the SE-B18AB.
An AV Connectivity tool allows the SE-B18AB to function as a portable data storage device when it is connected to USB-connectable tablets. A technology proprietary to Samsung, AV Connectivity is very convenient for tablet users who want to enjoy multimedia content stored on optical discs.
The SE-B18AB is also equipped with Smart Archive Technology which helps store personal data. Unlike existing optical disc archive technologies, the SE-B18AB follows the standard DVD format, making it compatible with archival discs (ISO10995 standard) and qualified normal discs.
The drive is engineered to run on widely used operating systems, including Windows 8 and the latest Mac OS versions, and is capable of reading and writing files at a variety of speeds across different data media types. Using Buffer Under Run technology, the drive works to prevent errors that result from writing speeds that can exceed data transfer speeds, while also enabling PC multi-tasking.
