Product Specs:

CD Format:

Writing speeds: 4x, 8x, 12x, 16x, 20x (CLV), 24x (Zone-CLV) [CD], 12x (CLV) [1.3GB]
Re-writing Speeds: 4x, 10x, 12x (CLV)
Reading speed: 40x (CAV)
4MB Buffer
Burn-Proof technology
FlexSS-BP technology
Shock-BP technology
Safe-BP technology

DVD Format
Writing speeds: 1x, 2x, 4x (DVD-R)
Re-writing speeds: 1x, 2x (DVD-RW)
Reading: 16x (CAV)

Recently Sony announced it’s DDCD-format (Double Desity Compact Disc) which gives you 1.3GB storage capacity using special DDCD media and a compatible drive. Now Sanyo’s approach makes this almost obsolete as according to the source their drive does the same with regular CD-Rs: 1.3GB bytes on a 74min CD-R and 1.4GB when using a 80min media.

A very interesting but not very standard or compatible approach!

Tämähän on aivan perkeleen selvä juttu. Let's stick with English, ok?
