Burn Double Layer DVDs on your PowerBook G4!
The MCE 8X Internal SuperDrive Upgrade with Double Layer support is the most advanced optical drive MCE Technologies has ever released for the PowerBook G4. Recording at 8X to both DVD-R and DVD+R media the MCE 8X Internal SuperDrive upgrade brings the PowerBook G4 on par with even the fastest drives Apple offers for their Power Mac G5 towers... even more amazing is that the MCE 8X SuperDrive upgrade has true Double Layer support which means you now have the ability to record up to 8.5GB of data on a single side of a Double Layer DVD.
The additional storage capacity of the DVD+R Double Layer disc enables you to record up to 4 hours of DVD-quality video or 16 hours of VHS-quality video, without the need to turn over the disc. You can now archive up to 8.5 Gbytes of computer files on a single disc, which almost doubles the storage capacity compared with the 4.7Gbytes for the single-layer DVD-recordable discs currently available.
The MCE 8x DVD-Recordable slot-loading drive is a dual drive and records to both DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW media. It also reads and writes standard CD-R/RW media and is compatible with all of Apple's iApps including iTunes, iDVD, iPhoto, and Finder Burning.
MCE's new 8x DVD-Recordable drive for the PowerBook G4 offers unprecedented media interchangeability and seven times the capacity of CD-R and CD-RW. The MCE 8x SuperDrive with Double Layer support reads industry-standard DVD-ROM, DVD-Video, DVD-R, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW, CD-DA, Photo CD, and Video CD media.
You may install it yourself or, if you are not so inclined, you may have the MCE 4x DVD-R/RW/RAM Dual Drive upgrade professionally installed into your PowerBook G4 by MCE Technologies or one of our worldwide Authorized Upgrade Centers.
