The SH-224BB Internal SATA Optical DVD Writer from Samsung is a high-speed internal DVD writer that features intelligent, Magic Speed technology. This writer intuitively detects the media type and automatically writes the disc at the most optimal speed. So all you have to do is just click to burn your disc.
The DVD-writer features buffer underrun prevention technology to prevent "buffer underrun" errors in which the data transmission speed is not as fast as the data writing speed when you record data.
Lastly, the burner is easy to install thanks to its SATA interface and can be mounted horizontally or vertically in a computer chassis.
Buffer Underrun Prevention Technology
A technology to prevent buffer underrun errors in which the data transmission speed is
not as fast as the data writing speed when you record data
It is a program that enables the user to select the reading speed of CD disc between two modes offered by the drive: Maximum speed mode (max mode) and silent mode
The speed-down algorithm operates the device at a safer disc reading speed. This prevents possible disc crashes when the disc has cracks. For customers who want to play CDs at maximum speed, Magic Speed lets customers choose the reading speed. (The writing speed will not be limited)
DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC)
The RPC feature is supported on DVD players and is used with DVD-video discs (such as
movies). The motion picture industry has divided the world into different regions that
correspond to the regional markets into which the motion picture industry releases movies.
Movies worldwide have RPC codes, based on the region of the world in which they are
being sold. These RPC codes help to control and prevent pirating of new movies into other
motion picture regions before their release within those markets. Therefore, this drive supports RPC phase II. In the RPC-2 mode, users can change the local code. RPC-2 is selected by default for this drive
