Yamaha to stop CD-R production?

Written by Lasse Penttinen @ 27 Jan 2003 9:22 User comments (1)

A german website Heise-News reports that Yamaha would stop manufacturing CD-R drives. Accordng to the source Yamaha's primary focus would be musical instruments and consumer products. The reason of this decision is the competitive pressure of cheapo manofacturers.
I would have imagined that a news item like this would had attention from bigger websites. On the other hand, our Yamaha contact told us earlier that Yamaha is about to relase a DVD writer.

In a recent pc magazine article, they said that Yamaha was going to put as much as they could, into the CRW-F1, and that was going to be their last cd-rw drive. Then, they were going to do the same, with a dvd-rw Drive, I guess it's going to read and write both the + and the - formats.
