Memorex launched a six-speed DVD drive, expanded its CD-RW drives and showed its last ever CD-ROM at this week's Ce-BIT. The storage media manufacturer predicted that the CD-Rom would be dead within two years, and CD-RW drives would bridge the gap until writeable DVD hits the market. Its latest offering, the DVD632 allows users to run current CD-Rom applications at 32x CD-Rom and 6x DVD speeds. The CD-RW drives combine increased speeds of up to 4x4x20 on laptops or as a back-up drive for work groups. Also on show were the 48X CD-Roms, the last CD-Rom model that will be made by Middlesex-based Memorex. Dino Mari, Memorex marketing manager, said: "The CD-Rom will fade out in the next two years to be replaced by the real state of the art drives - DVD." Mari added that these products were a move away from the company's traditional business. Memorex has been making recording media for audio and video for around 25 years. ®
