LaCie Enhances Portable DVD±RW Drive

Today LaCie announced the latest versions of its Portable DVD±RW Drive, design by Sam Hecht. Now with a sleek black finish, the award-winning LaCie Portable DVD±RW includes new multimedia burning solutions, allowing users to piece together sophisticated movie, music, and photo projects in a matter of minutes – creating customized CDs or DVDs wherever they go.

* Full-featured burning software for Mac or Windows

* LightScribe enabled to create custom labels

Featuring two versions for easy setup and seamless compatibility, users can choose from the multimedia burning solution for Mac or PC. The Windows® version comes with Creator Suite 10, while the combined Mac® and Windows version comes with Toast 9 Basic, as well as Creator Suite 10.

Additionally, it is USB bus-powered so only one cable is needed to start burning CDs and DVDs. The 8x drive is less than an inch tall and weighs under a pound - fitting perfectly into a bag, backpack, or briefcase.

"With the popularity of lightweight laptop computers and netbook solutions, which often exclude optical drives, users need an ultra-portable DVD±RW solution that will allow them to play, save, and share their multimedia collections," Christelle Dexet, Mutimedia Product Manager. "The new, black, Sam Hecht Portable DVD±RW offers mobility, simplicity, and of course style – without compromising the key features that complement their computing systems and their lifestyles."

The LaCie Portable DVD±RW drive is equipped with LightScribe – an innovative technology that allows you to burn silkscreen-quality labels directly onto CDs and DVDs with a laser instead of a printer.

The LaCie Portable DVD±RW will be available in versions for Mac and PC, through the LaCie Store Online, LaCie Reseller+ and LaCie Corner, starting at the suggested retail price of $89.99 VAT included. For more information, visit .
