Philips ships faster DVD drive

Royal Philips Electronics on Wednesday said it has begun shipping a new DVD burner drive to Hewlett-Packard.

The new DVD+RW drive is designed to write data more quickly to DVD+R and DVD+RW discs. It records in DVD+R format at 4x speeds and in DVD+RW format at 2.4x speeds. The drive can also burn CDs, according Philips. HP will likely use the drive in a number of desktop PCs this year, including its latest Pavilion and Media Center models, which are expected to hit retail stores by early July.
