The Best Burning Quality
OTS Technology increases burning success rates and provides users fast and high quality operation
ASUS believes that Green technologies help humanity bring a more healthy and wonderful world. What can we do to help reduce the energy consumption globally? With the philosophy of environment protection, ASUS gives you a new power saving E-Green and stability-OTS and quiet- QuieTrack green drive experience.
The innovative E-Green Engine technology features an E-Green Mode that automatically closes drive applications when not in use to help conserve energy - helping the environment by decreasing CO2 emissions and reducing the depletion of trees.
E-Green Engine technology provides an E-Green Mode which activates when the drives are idle for 2 minutes. Once activated, drive applications are closed when not in use to help conserve energy – helping the environment by saving energy, and in turn decreasing CO2 emissions and reducing the depletion of trees. According to in-depth calculations: on average, the PATA and SATA versions of the drive will provide 77% and 27% power savings respectively over competing solutions.
The ASUS E-Green Drive automatically optimizes your drive's power consumption. E-Green displays detailed information on power saved and CO2 reduced using the ASUS drive.
Note 1 : This section calculates the drive's saving information since restarting computer.
Note 2 : This section calculates the drive's accumulated saving information since install E-Green on your computer.
Everyone values privacy and data security; especially businessmen that have sensitive information that needs constant and care. With Disc Encryption, they can secure confidential data at ease. Disc Encryption allows you to protect an entire disc or its partial content contents with a password. Disc Encryption features provide 128-bit encryption for protecting data discs. It also allows you to hide the names of files. You can protect your important data easily.
It always takes several steps to create a new disc. Before burning a new disc, user need to select burning type, the burning disc type and the file they need to burn from each folder first, followed by selecting the writing speed. Still, you can also input more personal information, and then press "burn" to create a new disc. Now, it can be so easy and efficient to complete disc burning. ASUS Drag and Burn is a easy thumbnail layout for creating discs. Users just need to drop files into the interface then click "Burn" and a new disc is done.
Traditional Disc Burning Steps:
Select the media (CD/DVD) > Select Copy Type (Copy Data/Disc Copy) > Select the Burn Data > Select Burn Speed > Input the Disc Name > Burn
ASUS Disc Burning Steps:
We want to protect our valuable data from work, play or study onto discs for durability, mobility and sharing with others. But one of the major problems PC user face is burning unplayable disks all the time. OTS is an intelligent learning program for disc recording. This design is to prevent the variation of disc and drive firmware could learn the different recording strategy by each different discs. Optimal Tuning Strategy (OTS) provides users with improved disc burning for better total write quality. With OTS, the drive will perform a test burning before really burning the disc, and OTS is intelligent enough to encompass both media and drive variations, as well as operating temperatures into its calculations - allowing it to provide the optimal write speeds to produce the optimal burning strategy for the new disc. After the disc is burnt, OTS memorizes the particular type of disc, and will utilize the same burning strategy when the same type of disc is used. This not only reduces the possibility to burn unplayable discs, it also provides high quality backups and improves compatibility so that the disc can more easily be read by other drives; as well as extends the lifetime of drives. The write parameters will be tuned automatically by drives based on the recorded write quality.
