Co-developed by HLDS and Nero, the SecurDisc technology enables secure data protection and content access control when writing data on CD and DVD formats. While some optical disc drives support password encryption as the only security function, LG's new GSA-H55N super Multi drive with Security Function offers multiple features to protect a disc at the user and storage level:

- Password Encryption - Protects user data against unauthorized access through password protection
- Disc Creator Authentication - A digital signature is applied to all data to allow recipients to verify data authenticity
- Integrity Checker - Detects altered data through checksums to verify data integrity and readability
- Data Insurance - Increases data reliability through redundantly stored data
The new LG GSA-H55N will be available at the beginning of April and will additionaly support writing at 20x (DVD-R/+R). Its estimated retail price will be 59 euro. A lighscribe version of the drive (LG GSA-H55L) will be also available at the same time.

CeBIT visitors will also have the chance to see the first PC drive that is functioning as Blu-ray Disc Rewriter and HD DVD-ROM drive. The new GGW-H10N is a "Super Multi Blue" Blu-ray Disc Rewriter and HD DVD-ROM Drive.

The GGW-H10N can record up to 50GB of data. Surpassing the market standard, LG is providing a 4x recording speed of Blu-ray Discs, which means that it takes only 23-24 minutes to burn a full single layer BD-R disc (25GB), compared with 46-47 minutes for conventional 2x recording.

The SATA drive will be released in May, priced under US $1,200. The core technologies of Super Multi Blue Drive are Optical Pickup technology, which supports Blu-ray disc write/playback, HD DVD playback and DVD/CD write/playback, as well as the system controlling the Optical Pickup securely and effectively.

wonder how long it will be before we see the multi-blue drive below 200 bux. I sure hope sooner the better, but at 1200 right now, u can get a PS3 + Xbox360+HD DVD add on drive.. that's just rediculous.

Totally agree, All I want is a damn HD-DVD ROM. I don't understand why they holding out on a HD-DVD rom, it drives me nuts why they try and milk everything to death.

QFT. No more PATA please. Those cables are so ugly!

I'm also secretly hoping slot loading drives make a comeback. Sure they were loud, but they were so cool! Like a car stereo! But in my PC! :captnkill:

You're just rough. You gotta treat it gentle. You have to caress the CD, feel the CD, until it's a living breathing extension of yourself.

Looks good but I don't need a burner. Just a HDDVD player...

did anyone tried to open one of those drives? what interface does it use inside?

Yeah, but if you think about it, that LG dual-format player is $1200 and it doesn't have the HD DVD camp's official endorsement. This does, so I assume that means it's a 100%-complete HD DVD player (meaning it can do all the iHD stuff the stand-alone player can't) plus play and burn BDs.

If one were choosing, I'd say this would the best choice; then just hook this mofo up to an HTPC.

$1200 isn't so much. Do you all remember how much the first DVD burners cost back then ? Or the first CD writers, for that matter... Or (and this shows my age ;)) the WORM and MO drives (Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Sony, HP, Dynamo, Pinnacle Micro, etc)... They cost all more (in some cases even much more) than $1000...

Give them time. BD and HD-DVD (and combined ones) burners will reach <$400 really fast...
