Designed as part of a new generation of high speed CD recorders from Yamaha,
the CRW8824 series of CD-RW drives are the world's first recorders to
rewrite CD-RW discs at 8x speed, doubling the current standard of 4x and
cutting the required time to rewrite a CD-RW disc in half. The IEEE 1394
FireWire technology provides easy installation and reliable performance.
