Toshiba SD-R5372 Rewritable DVD±R/RW & 
CD-R/RW Desktop Computer Drive (SDR5372)


A leading developer in optical storage, Toshiba continues to leverage its expertise with the dual format optical disk drive. Compatible with the multitude of current formats, this latest drive enables users to read, record and rewrite content to DVD-R/RW and +R/RW media and CDs. With Toshiba's DVD recordable drive, transferring home videos, photos and other digital files from the computer to the living room DVD player becomes virtually effortless.

With the desire to preserve higher capacity information continually on the rise, storage manufacturers are constantly exploring ways to save more information on a smaller space. The continued development of DVD technology brings these opportunities closer to reality. In the current state of multiple formats, users can find optimal performance in a unit that reads and records all of the major standards, ensuring that data recorded today will be accessible tomorrow.
