Iomega Corp. has introduced the new CD-RW/DVD-ROM Plus 7-in-1 Card Reader that can transfer photos, music and data from flash memory media to the computer and burn them on to a CD.

According to the company, the card reader enables home users and digital camera enthusiasts to download digital camera images, drag and drop files between media cards, archive photos, watch DVDs and back up data, all from the same device. The drive also provides users with the latest in 52x24x52x CD-RW technology enhanced with 16x DVD-ROM (read-only) capability.

"Iomega's CD-RW/DVD-ROM Plus 7-in-1 Card Reader is a simpler and faster alternative for transferring memory card data to the PC, and it conserves batteries in the portable device," said Chris McPherson, managing director of Iomega for Asia-Pacific.

Key features of the product includes up to 52x24x52 write/rewrite/read CD speeds, up to 16x DVD-ROM read speeds, ripping (DAE) speed of 48x, high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity, and backward compatibility with USB 1.1 (limits drive speed to 4x4x6x6x).

Compatible with both PC and Mac, the product includes a buffer underrun protection for reliability, a HotBurn Pro software and Charismac Discribe software. The drive reads DVD, reads/writes CD-RW, and reads/writes CompactFlash (type I and type II), SmartMedia, Microdrive, Multimedia Card, Secure Digital, Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro flash media.
