Internal DVD/CD Writer - Serial ATA (SATA) Interface


The DVR-216D DVD/CD Writer supports 20x write speeds on both DVD-R/+R along with the capability to write up to 12x on DVD-R/+R on dual/double layer media.  There are many new features for the DVR-216D DVD/CD Writer, including:

  • Optimal Write Speed: the drive recognizes the disc media and automatically adjusts the write speed to ensure the highest quality digital preservation of vital files
  • Quiet Drive: the internal mechanisms of the drive were redesigned to better insulate the distracting noise generated by a disc spinning at extremely fast rotations per minute (RPM).  The unique interlocking design ensures a low acoustic noise by "trapping" the airflow noise generated by the spinning disc while simultaneously dampening the sounds created by normal drive usage
  • Improved Durability: through the new anti-dust design, an improved chassis insulation aids in the protection of the drive's internal components from dust and small particles that can hinder the drive's operability and life span
