TEAC has introduced a new portable, battery-operated CD-RW drive that includes either a USB or a PCMCIA interface. The 4x4x6 USB drive weighs just over one pound and is approximately the same size as a portable audio CD player. The drive features 110ms average access time and 2MB data buffer as well as an integrated rechargeable battery pack that can power both the drive and recharge itself while plugged into the AC Adapter. The USB version, available for $330, comes with Roxio's Toast for burning CDs.
