LaCie Remote Burn
Storage builder LaCie says it has released a new piece of Mac software for its optical drives, Remote Burn. Currently available only for its portable DVD±RW drives, the application lets users burn a disc with drives connected over a local network, rather than just those directly attached. This in turn enables multiple users to share the same output.
To burn files, users simply drag the desired items into the software, which then determines the type of CD or DVD needed. Users can arrange burns into queues, view completion histories, and enable options such as verification and data compression. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and only functions with the aforementioned LaCie drives.
