Logitec portable DVD burner takes 8cm discs, needs two USB ports

Something that I find particularly interesting about the Nintendo Wii, other than its unique motion sensing controller, is that the slot will happily accept both the DVD-sized Wii discs as well as miniature GameCube discs. Nintendo isn’t the only one to do that. Logitec (not to be confused with Logitech) has just revealed their LDR-PMC802 portable DVD burner, which will not only slot-load garden variety DVD+/-Rs and RWs, but also those tiny 8cm renditions as well.

Another notable feature is that the included USB cable comes with a Y-splitter, meaning that the LDR-PMC802 needs to get its power from not one, but two USB ports. I’m not sure if it can run off just one, but to be the same side, you might want to stick with dos.

By slot-loading 8cm mini-DVDs, this Logitec burner is said to be an industry first. The max read/write rates go as thus: 8x DVD±R/+RW, 5x DVD-RAM, 6x DVD-RW, 4x DVD±R DL, 24x CD-R/RW, 8x DVD-ROM and 24x CD-ROM. Pricing is expected to be about $188, with Japan-bound shipping commencing by the end of the month.
