has announced plans to introduce an internal 3.0GB DVD+RW drive. The DRX101S/C will
support 1-1.25X DVD recording, 1-2.5X DVD read speed, 24X max CD-ROM playback, and
incorporate a SCSI interface. The drive is expected to come bundled with a variety of DVD
tools, including UDF File System software for drive letter access. And, unlike the
majority of DVD-RAM drives, DVD+RW devises do not require caddy-based media. Sony is
aiming for a fall 1999 release of the DRX101S/C.
