THIS ITEM IS SOLD... THANKS!! Maximum PC has awarded TDK's burners 9/10 almost everytime for their reliability and speed. The Velocd I have is the 40x write, 12x re-write, 48x read model. It is an internal IDE drive and works flawlessly. I have all documentation, CD software and boxes. I'm only selling due to buying a DVD burner and this is redundant.
