Designed for road warriors, the US$249.95 compact unit (approximately 5.6 x 7 x 1 inches) gets its power from your Mac’s FireWire bus via a standard three-foot FireWire cable, so it doesn’t require a battery or AC adapter. It features buffer underrun prevention for error-free CD writing
The FireWire CD-R/W has a front-loading/ejection CD tray and a headphone jack built into the drive for private listening.
The SmartDisk FireWire Portable CD-R/W drive is available now. You can find one at retailers and distributors, as well as through SmartDisk’s Web site.
