Ricoh Announces CD/R/RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

September 22, 2020 | Ricoh Disc Media and System Center division (DMS-C) has begun shipping its new MP9120A (ATAPI) CD-R/RW/DVD-ROM combo drive. The MP9120A features 12X write, 10X rewrite, 32X max read, and 8X DVD-ROM read speeds. The drive also features the JustLink error prevention technology, which helps to prevent buffer underruns by predicting them before they occur. JustLink can suspend writing when error detection is predicted, and resumes when enough data has accumulated in the buffer. The MP9120A includes a 2MB data buffer, and a 100ms average acess speed. The drive ships with Prassi?s PrimoCD Plus premastering software, as well as abCD for packet writing, and MGI Software?s WinDVD 2000. The MP9120A utilizes a dual laser diode/single lens pickup system which incorporates both the CD and DVD laser diodes (LDs) into a single pickup. Other functions include 32X max digital audio extraction, and an S/PDIF terminal for digital audio output. Ricoh?s MP9120A is available at an estimated retail price of $349.
