CyberLink releases BluRay and HD-DVD burning suite

By Justin Mann on May 5, 2006, 3:47 PM
Looks like CyberLink (developer of CyberDVD among other things) will be the first software company to produce commercial software to burn BluRay discs as well as HD-DVD discs. The updated software, Power2Go 5.5 Next-Gen Edition (a mouthful that is), will be able to burn single layer/dual layer HD-DVD and single layer BluRay, with capacities from 15GB to 30GB (with up to 50GB if they release a dual-layer BluRay burner). It retails for $39.95, but I'm betting that as high capacity optical drives become more popular you'll see stipped down versions of it being bundled with the devices themselves.

Maybe only $39.36 or the same price ($39.95)with a coupon.

The app CyberLink is popular for is PowerDVD, not CyberDVD.On an unrelated note, but still regarding HD-DVD, a friend and I were curious as to what makes the new Toshiba set-top player tick (the HD-A1), so we tore it apart and found that inside is a Pentium 4 PC connected to a standard IDE drive, and firmware running on Red Hat Linux stored on a USB flash key! We made a video as we worked:[url]
