The DVR-S606 is a high capacity optical storage system based on the Pioneer DVR-A06, the company's sixth-generation internal recordable drive. It enables users to write a wide variety of files to DVD for storage or playback in other DVD devices. Pioneer delivers its first external drive in a sleek industrial design that is quick and easy to install. The drive can sit vertically or horizontally, supports multiple DVD media formats, and plugs into standard IEEE 1394 (Firewire) and USB 2.0 ports.
