Yamaha yesterday announced its CRW-F1, "the first" CD recorder to offer 24x ReWritable capabilities. The mechanism offers full Mt. Rainer support, which "adds true drag-and-drop CD rewriting and on-the-fly formatting to CD-RW creation in PC, Mac, and Linux operating systems [including OS X]...There is no need to install separate CD-mastering software or a hardware driver." It also includes a CD-RW Audio Track Edit system, which allows the user to easily add and delete audio tracks from CD-RW media, without erasing the entire disc.
