Acer introduces the 2410A CD Writer

Acer introduces the 2410A CD Writer

EUROPE (October, 2001) Acer's new CRW 2410A is one of the fastest CD writers on the market today. Its performance is quite simply superb: a data rate write of up to 3600 KB/sec (24X), a data rate rewrite of up to 1500 KB/sec (10X), and a data rate read of up to 6000 KB/sec (40X). The typical access time is 100 ms and it has a buffer of 2 Mbytes.

All this is in response to a market demand for high-speed, reliable writing and rewriting. Certainly, as files get larger, so the need for fast writing and rewriting increases. At Acer, we hear you, and develop products that reliably satisfy your highest expectations.

The CRW 2410A can accept both 80 mm and 120 mm CD discs and is suitable for a wide range of formats: CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM (mode 1 and mode 2), CD-ROM XA (mode 2, form 1 and form 2), CD-DA, Bootable CD, Photo CD (single and multi-sessions), Video CD, CD-Extra, Mixed mode CD, and CD-text. It offers a variety of writing modes: Disc-at-once, Track-at-once, Multisession, Packet writing, and Raw Writing. It is fitted with an E-IDE/ATAPI interface, and is compatible with Windows 95/98/ME/2000 and NT 4.0. Of course, the 2410A features the Acer patented Seamless Link Technology*.

The new Acer CRW 2410A is bundled with two high-speed discs (1 CD-RW and 1 CD-R) and comes with a full range of Nero software.

Seamless Link Technology* A buffer under-run is one of the most irritating problems that occur when burning a CD. Not only does it waste time, it also wastes discs. But with "Seamless Link", that problem is a thing of the past. The Acer-developed "Seamless Link" technology allows the driver to monitor automatically the progress of the recording. 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.
