FirewireDirect.com has announced the
UltraBURN DVD-R. It’s a new FireWire-based optical drive that can burn DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R and CD-RW media on both Windows and Mac OS-equipped systems.
The software ships with CharisMac’s Discribe software for Mac and utilizes Pioneer’s DVR-104 mechanism. The new drive is twice as fast as previous DVD-R burners, and FirewireDirect claims to be the first company in the world to ship the mechanism in an external FireWire configuration.
The UltraBURN DVD-R is shipping now for US$549.95, including a 6-pin FireWire cable, power cable, software and media.
