Today Lite-On launched a new 24x Internal DVD writer. One of the features that caught my eye was SMART Erase which overwrites existing data with random and meaningless characters so the disc can no longer be read by any drive.


Lite-On have today announced the speedy 24X iHAS624 DVD writer with LabelTag and LightScribe.

The 24X internal SATA interface DVD writer is fast and packed full of features to deliver users a highly accurate disc recording solution. Smart Erase adds reassurance by providing a fully secure way to dispose of unwanted discs, whilst LabelTag and Lightscribe allow users to create professional and easy-to-use labels for discs without fuss.

The iHAS624 is flexible, reliable and perfect for anyone looking to back up personal files, photos or

DVD videos without a compromise on quality.

Key Features:

* 24X SATA DVD Writer

* LabelTag & LightScribe disc labelling

* Smart Erase for secure data erasing

* SmartWrite, Smart-X and Smart Burn

Advanced labelling technology for hassle-free disc archiving:

The patented LabelTag technology allows users to etch a label with text and a small picture onto the data side of any standard DVD+/-R single layer or CD-R discs. The images are created at the same time as writing the disc data and at the normal writing speed.

LightScribe uses special media to allow users to design labels and print onto the top side of the disc – simply burn the data, flip the disc and add a professional finishing touch to the disc.

Both LabelTag and Lightscribe provide a quick and cost effective solution to disc labelling without any need for fussy markers or additional hardware/software – making it easier than ever to back-up and share data in a colourful and consistent style.

A range of SMART technology features to offer users the greatest versatility in disc burning:

SMART Erase is a patented function for DVD+/-R(DL) and CD-R discs, which overwrites existing data with random and meaningless characters so the disc can no longer be read by any drive. This process provides assurance to users that any confidential data is no longer able to be accessed by anyone and is guarantees a more thorough approach to simply breaking the disc or ‘shredding’ data.

SMART Burn technology compares the disc to be burned with an updated detailed list from Lite-On and automatically adjusts the writing strategy to provide the best burn quality. This advanced system reduces disc errors and wasted discs.

SmartWrite is designed to optimize the writing strategy for each burning session. Using a smart writing algorithm and self-learning techniques, it will detect and select the best method of writing data for each type of media used, and then remember that decision for future sessions.

SMART-X automatically adjusts the extraction rate for optimum read performance, reducing overall operating noise and vibration.

Pricing & Availability:

The iHAS624 will be approximately £29 SRP and is  available this month from a selection of retailers.
