Does anyone have or know this:

SONY 24x10x40 Internal EIDE CD-RW Drive
MODEL: CRX175A1/C1

"Sony advances the state of the art for CD burning with its new 24X CD-RW drive. The CRX175A1/C1 can create a full CD in less than 4 minutes, and features Sony’s buffer underrun CD recording management system.

This technology takes the worry out of CD burning by eliminating buffer underrun and optimizing the burn to the brand and type of CD-R/RW disc used. "

got that link from

http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=289219

Does anyone know if this is the same thing as BURN PROOF TECHNOLOGY? Can I still burn while using other application simultaneously w/o any errors?

This is from the CDRInfo test on the burner:

“
is the technology designed to prevent errors in writing data onto a CD-R/RW disk in a CD-R/RW drive by automatically setting up the optimum recording conditions for the media while automatically adjusting to the delay in data transmission from a host PC. Even if data writing onto a CD-R/RW disk is interrupted due to delays in data transmission from the host PC (buffer under-run), Power-Burn technology instantly controls and accurately connects the interruption and resumption points of the data recording to give continuous writing indispensable for CD-R/RW playback compatibility.
In addition Power-Burn automatically optimizes recording conditions for the CD-R/RW drive such as the writing speed and the strength of recording laser light,analyzing the disk quality by reading pre-recorded information like the recommended recording speed and the conditions of a recordable side of the disk. In general, the acceleration of writing speed of CD-R/RW drives increases the possibility of delay in the data transmission from the host PC, which causes buffer under-run. Because CRX175A stops its data transmission when buffer under-run occurs and resumes writing only after a sufficient amount of data has been transmitted from the host PC, it avoids writing errors. “
Evidently this is a blurb from Sony.

In their tests they said:
“- Buffer Underrun tests
SONY CRX175A supports the "PowerBurn" anti-coaster technology which worked fine in any case of sudden buffer underrun.”

It would appear that it is a true Burn-Proof type setup and you should be able to multi-task while you burn.

You might want to read the entire test – there is some good information about such things as 99 minute CD and such:
