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.
