SMART-X will also kick in if you are watching a movie from a CD (VCD). In this case, you don't need the CD to be read at full speed, so SMART-X will adjust speed for optimal performance. The SMART-X function will also check for scratched CDs and slows the drive down to prevent reading errors, so it acts almost like an error detection and correction mechanism. SMART-BURN is short for Smart Monitoring & Adapting Recording Technology for BURNing. It is not just a buffer underrun protection technology, it also acts like a writing error reduction system to assure the best quality write available. LITE-ON merged media condition checks, variable writing speed strategies, OPC (Optical Power Calibration) tests and buffer underrun technology. The drive has a media list and writing strategy in the firmware, and when a media is inserted the SMART-BURN checks to see if the media is found in the firmware. If so, then the preset writing strategy will be used. If the writing strategy for the inserted media is not in the firmware, a default strategy will be used. This includes a series of media condition checks, OPC (Optical Power Calibration). The drive will choose the best laser power and speed for the inserted media, or it might even use variable writing speed strategies. It is just like having both Plextor's BURN-Proof and PowerRec in one complete function, thanks to LITE-ON and MediaTek.

Fujifilm 128MB USB drive

"One of the things that had been bugging me recently is the way I've been transferring files from one computer to another when they're in different locations. For large files the choice is easy, a CDR or CDRW with the data burned onto it. The problem with that solution is that I usually don't have access to a burner when I get to my destination - so I can only transfer files one way. With smaller files I transport them the same way I have been for the last 15 years... via floppy disk. The problem with that is associated with the physical disk itself. I've a tendency to get careless with them and carry them around in my back pocket - where they are promptly bent beyond usability or broken entirely. As I contemplated my latest data loss due to gluteal interference I decided that there had to be a better way. "

" This motherboard has everything you want. Overclocking goes quite easily. Performance is quite good and it comes packed with a lot of handy gadgets. If your in the market for a all-in-one AMD solution, that looks great in a window, then the Soyo Dragon is a good buy."
