Iomega has announced a 6x4x24x4x ZipCD drive that combines DVD with CD-RW.
The internal ATAPI drive for Windows machines will write CDs at 6x speed, rewrite CDs at 4x, read CDs at 24x and read DVDs at 4x. It is likely to ship in the autumn and pricing will be announced on its launch.
Iomega has also launched a 12x4x32x ZipCD internal ATAPI CD-RW drive. The drive features Burn-proof software, which reduces CD-R creation failures by predicting transfer interruptions. The drive ships with Adaptec Easy CD Creator and DirectCD software. Being an internal ATAPI drive, it only runs on Windows-based machines. It costs around £180.
