Creator 4.02c, DirectCD 3.01c and Toast 4.1 of Adaptec.
The main reason the drive is wide spread is that the majority
are delivered in ΞΕΜ package.
It's interesting that together with the software for PC
the disc contains Toast 4.1, which is intended for disc recording under
Beside the programs for disc recording there is a good collection
of mp3 soundtracks!
The design is a little unusual: the tray panel is even.
At the same time, on the site of Yamaha, CRW8824E copies the design of
the previous models.
We should notice, that SCSI-analog has a usual design with
roundish shape. Other features remain the same. The front panel includes:
two indicators (On/Disc and Read/Write), each works in red/green color
mode; headphones jack, volume control, emergency ejection hole and a little
sunk open button. The tray has a deeper hole than usual CD-ROM and other
CD-RW drives have; it goes out fast, slowing to the end. The drive can
be installed only in horizontal position.
It characterized by low noise and vibration level.
On Yamaha site we have found the information on support
of recording on 700 Mb CDs. There is a digital output and a cooler on
the rear panel.
