With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

The official marketing text of NEC ND-2510-GNP as supplied by the manufacturer
- Doubling the capacity of previous drives to provide 8.5Gb of storage space
- NEC’s first double layer device to offer multi-format compatibility
- Offering advanced solution for digital media recording and PC back-up

NEC (UK) Ltd today announced the launch of the ND2510A, an advanced double layer 8x DVD re-writer. The new model incorporates NEC’s leading optical storage technology to offer a high capacity, reliable device, ideal for digital video recording, storage and PC data back-up applications.

The ND2510A delivers high-speed write and re-write functions, and is one of the UK’s first dual format drives to support DVD +R9, the new double layer standard. This allows users the flexibility to choose a wider range of DVD R media without compromising performance or storage capacity.

Andrew Wyllie, Commercial Manager for NEC’s Data Storage Business in the UK, commented: “There is a growing market demand for high-capacity, reliable optical storage solutions. NEC is committed to the development of advanced products incorporating the latest technology. Having developed the UK’s first factory standard four-speed multi-format DVD writer and 8x R 4x RW drive, we are delighted to announce availability of our double layer, +/- compatible device.”

The development of double layer technology literally doubles the storage capacity of DVD R discs. Because both layers can be accessed from the same side, there is no need for users to turn the disc over to use the additional capacity. With the NEC ND2510A it is possible to record up to 8.5Gb of data, equating to approximately four hours of DVD media or 16 hours of VHS video on one DVD disc.

In addition to improved ease-of use, the ND2510A will deliver significantly improved performance, ensuring users need no longer compromise on quality of video and stills due to lack of space on the disc. It also offers significantly faster recording speeds, for example a 1 hour DVD can be recorded in less than 10 minutes.

The ND-2510A incorporates NEC’s ‘high resolution writing strategy’ and ‘Active Optimized Power Control’ (Active OPC) to enhance the quality of written data. Active OPC dynamically monitors writing power and reflection of the media in use, calculating the optimum laser power and adjusting it in real-time, to overcome issues such as fingerprints on a disc.
