After installation the drive OS Windows 98 identified ASUS as IDE CD-R/RW 8x4x32.
We should notice that the manual is very detailed, though only in English.
It was the first drive delivered with software of Ahead Software company. I wouldn't call Nero Burning Rom the ideal program, but it's not that bad.
The CD beside Nero contains user's manuals on the programs of Ahead Software company in pdf format (in 13 languages). There is also Nero Player for working with sound.
The program has some good features: one of the functions allows to code in MP3, VQF and WAV formats from CD or Line-In soundcard at once. After that the program will help to prepare the files for writing onto CD. The program supports its skins and visual plug-ins of WinAmp. When coding in mp3 there used Fraunhofer codec that allows to vary the bitrate from 96 to 320 Kbit/s with usage of VBR.
The drive has a sporty design.
It's the lightest drive.
The front panel includes: headphones jack (1), mechanical volume control (2), round open button (7), two indicators (5,6), emergency ejection hole (3). The tray (4) goes out jerkily and it isn't snug against the case properly, so there is some noise and vibration. Besides, there is some whistle while reading.
On the rear panel there is a digital output.
