The NeXT External
CD-ROM Drive
provides immediate
access to large
of information.
With a capacity of up to 680 megabytes of stored data, the NeXT™ External CD-ROM
Drive is ideal for people who desire an efficient means to generate a backup copy of their
system software from a CD-ROM disc. CD-ROM discs also provide a convenient way to
update or load additional software onto your hard disk drive or network server. You can
copy industry standard files such as TIFF, EPS, RTF, or text, into applications running on
your NeXT computer, or move the data onto your hard disk, to take advantage of all the
editing options available on NeXT systems.
The drive also allows you to explore the multitude of CD-ROM discs holding digitally
recorded text, graphics, and sound files, as well as listen to your favorite audio CDs
by using the drive’s RCA jacks. Switch back and forth, as you desire.
The NeXT External CD-ROM Drive supports the major file formats, High Sierra,
ISO-9660, and Rockridge, making it possible to select from an expansive range of available
CD-ROM titles, as well as high-quality color and PostScript® image files.
680 MB capacity
Large enough for full system software releases. Unlike having a software
release on floppies, the single CD-ROM is convenient for updating your
hard disk. You don’t have to constantly swap floppies.
Integrated 64-kilobyte
RAM cache buffer
Improves the transfer rate of data to the computer, which is important when
reading large image or text files.
High Sierra, ISO-9660 and
Rockridge file format
Allows you to work with discs produced in industry-standard formats.
Front-loading disc design
Quick and convenient access to the drive. Allows you to stack additional
peripherals on top of the drive.
Auto-loading and eject
Allows simple disc insertion and automated disc eject when the computer
has completed using the data on the disc.
Leveraged network sharing
Allows drive to be shared across the network, enabling all network users to
access data and applications, and to update to new system software from a
single drive.
NeXTstep™ system software
distributed on CD-ROM discs
Low-cost and convenient way to update to a newer software release.
Universal power supply
Allows you to take the CD-ROM drive anywhere in the world.
Automatically switches from 100V to 240V.
Audio compatibility
Allows music to be played from standard music CDs from either the RCA
jacks or from the headphone jacks with appropriate software. The
headphone volume is easily adjusted from the front of the drive.
