Acer is recognised as one of the world leaders in CD drive technology. Confirmation of this comes from PC Magazine (The Netherlands) September 2001 - "the Acer CRW 6424MU stands out thanks to its slim design. Choice of the Editor." The new Acer MiniRW 8824MM further establishes this reputation.
The Acer MiniRW 8824MM is the perfect solution for anyone requiring powerful CD re-writing possibilities in a compact and lightweight package.
Seamless Link Technology*
This technology allows the CD-RW drive to monitor and safeguard the progress of the recording automatically. If the data in the buffer falls below a certain level, then Seamless Link stores the RecEnd address - the point in the data to which the recording has progressed - and pauses the recording until the buffer is again full. The RecEnd address is then located and the recording progresses without problems. The gap between the stop and restart point on the recording is then closed by Seamless Link.
