The AD-7260S internal DVD/CD recordable drive continues to provide the same 24X max speed and high quality performance set by the predecessor model AD-7240S, which was the world's first 24X speed half height DVDRW drive.  The AD-7260S supports up to 24X max DVD+/-R recording, 12X DVD+/-R Double/Dual layer recording, 12X DVD-RAM, and 48X CD-R performance.
