First HD DVD Writable Drive Displayed at Computex Taipei 2006

Toshiba Corp. has displayed the first HD DVD Writable Drive (SD-L902A) and its pick-up head at the Computex Taipei 2006 show. The drive can write almost any optical disc you can find on the market now from CD-R/RW to DVD-/+R DL, DVD-/+RW and DVD-RAM to upcoming HD DVD-R. It can also read almost anything from CDs to DVDs to HD DVD-R. You may want to check out the source webpage (in Japanese) for higher resolution images...
