Plextor offers 'Vista Compatible' DVD burner Plextor has announced the immediate availability of the TurboPlex PX-800A DVD Super Multi Drive, which the company says is fully compatible with Microsoft's new Windows Vista operating system. The company says the new DVDR/RW CD-R/RW drive introduces a new level of performance and features, including 12X DVD-RAM and a software bundle that includes Roxio Easy Media Creator 9.
It uses the E-IDE ATAPI interface for easy connectivity with personal computers running the Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista operating systems. It supports industry-leading 12X-speed DVD-RAM functionality for removable data storage applications.

"The PX-800A supports multiple data storage, audio and DVD playback, and optical disc recording applications, with faster performance across-the-board," said Michael Arbisi, vice president of channel sales for Plextor. "The PX-800A is one of the first drives from Plextor to support the newly released Windows Vista operating system from Microsoft. Including the latest version of Roxio Easy Media Creator really makes this drive a great value for customers."

Blank DVD media (+r/-r) can be written at 18x for single layer and 8x for dual-layer. The PX-800A multi-drive also features a 2MB buffer and Buffer Underrun Proof Technology to prevent buffer underrun errors and allow multi-tasking.

I didn't think a DVD burner was that dependent on an operating system just so long as the operating system (no matter what it is) can properly control the burner. I'm missing something... Can somebody help?
