Features
The ASUS CRW-2410S is a CD-RW drive with 24X-write, 10X- rewrite,
and 40X-read capabilities. The drive complies with the AT Attachment
Packet Interface (ATAPI) specification and comes equipped with a host of
the latest innovative technologies in CD recording.
BURN-Proof Technology
The BURN-Proof technology, which stands for Buffer Under RuN Proof,
prevents the buffer underrun error caused by an empty data buffer. It does
so by means of a controller that continuously monitors the status of the
data buffer throughout the write process.
If the available data drops below 10% of the total buffer capacity, the
controller initiates a controlled interrupt to the writing process and sets a
write marker. New data is then loaded to the cache, and the laser is
repositioned. The drive synchronizes the data already written with the new
data in the buffer, and repositions the laser behind the sector most recently
written.
This technology also ensures that your PC remains fully operational
throughout the writing process, and available for other applications.
Zone CLV Recording Technology
The Zone Constant Linear Velocity (CLV) recording method allows you to
achieve a higher recording speed by using a different speed for each of
the three zones partitioned from the inner to the outer area in a disc.
When using the Zone CLV, the recording in Zone 1 is 16x speed, then
increases to 20x speed in Zone 2, after t1 time. In Zone 3, the recording
reaches 24x speed, after t2 time. When the recording is complete, the
drive accesses and checks the recorded data area to execute
synchronization between Zones 1 and 2, then between Zones 2 and 3.
The BURN-Proof technology is used to execute this synchronization,
preventing any gap between the zones.
The illustration on the next page shows the Zone CLV process.

FlexSS-BP Speed Control Technology
The FlexSS-BP technology stands for “Flexible Speed” and “Flexible
Strategy”. This technology prevents problems with recording media when
writing at high speeds like 20x or 24x.
Because of disc variations caused by serpentine tracks or off-centered
discs, Flexible Speed allows the drive to assess the physical condition of
the disc then determine the suitable recording speed for the disc. While
recording, the drive continues to monitor the disc condition and flexibly
switches to different speeds to maintain the optimum recording condition.
Flexible Strategy measures and evaluates the recording condition of
recorded area at switching zones. This feature can restart the recording
after checking the pit condition at the recording stop position and the
optimization of the recording parameters.

Setting the Jumper Terminals
Configure the the jumpers to set the device to master or slave mode
before physically installing it to your computer chassis. Use jumper blocks
to short the pins to your desired setting.
CAUTION: Make sure to correctly place the jumper blocks over the
pins. Failure to do so may cause irreparable damage to the drive!
Jumper Terminals
Master Mode
Cover the two pins below the label MA to set the
CD-RW drive as a Secondary Master drive. This is
possible only if your computer supports four IDE
devices. The hard disk in the computer is set as
Primary Master.
Slave Mode
Cover the two pins below the label SL to set the
CD-RW drive as a Slave device if your computer
supports only two IDE devices.
If your computer supports four IDE devices, this
setting sets your CD-RW drive as a Primary Slave
or Secondary Slave.
Cable Select Mode
Cover the two pins below the label CS if your
computer supports a Cable Select (CSEL) signal.
You need an exclusive interface cable for this
setting. Refer to your computer manual for details.
