CenDyne announced that it is shipping two new external DVD burners to major retailers in North America. According to the company, its new DVD burners give consumers a single product for recording any type of video, photography, music or data onto DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R and CD-RW media.
The first drive, the CenDyne DVD-R/RW External USB 2.0/FireWire drive, has a dual PC connection that may appeal to home or business users who will want to use the drive with multiple PCs, either via a FireWire or USB port. CenDyne is also now shipping the CenDyne DVD-R/RW External USB 2.0 drive for customers that will only use the drive with a PC via a USB connection.
Additionally, the new drives include InterVideo's WinDVD that allows play-back of DVD movies created commercially or on a DVD burner. The drives also ship with Nero Express, NeroVision Express and InCD for burning and creation.
Both new CenDyne DVD burners also read and write CD-R and CD-RW media and provide CD buffer under-run protection. Also, the new drives should easily attach to a PC via an external connection.
