Hardware Installation

The installation of CRW2440 is fast and easy. Please follow these instructions described below:


System Requirements

A PC system with the following features is highly recommended for ensuring a stable

CD-R/RW performance.


CPU : Pentium II 350 MHz or higher


Operating System : Windows 95/98/ME/2000/NT4.0

Ÿ Memory : 32MB minimum, 64MB recommended

Ÿ CD-ROM Drive : Minimum 16X drive recommended


Writing Software :

The drive requires CD writing software to write onto a CD-R/RW disc. When you use the CD writing software, make sure that it supports this drive.

Ÿ Hard Drive Space :

When writing to a CD-R/RW disc, you will need a working area (50 to 100 MB free space) on the hard drive. When creating an image file for all data to write to a CD-R/RW disc, in addition to the working area, you will need as much hard drive space as that data (up to 800 MB in total). However, such hard drive space for the image file is not needed when you are directly writing from a hard drive, CD-ROM drive or so on (on-the-fly writing).
