Iomega has started shipping its new Predator CD-RW drive with FireWire connectivity. The new drive offers write speeds of 8x, rewrite speeds of 4x and read speeds of 32x. The write speed is double that of its USB drive, and the read speed is about five times as fast.

The Predator also offers the ability to exchange interfaces using Iomega's own adapters. Hot-swappable connection types include USB 1.1, FireWire, PC Card and USB 2.0 (when it becomes available).

The drive ships with Macintosh and Windows software, including Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4.0, Adaptec DirectCD 3.0, Adaptec Toast, MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, MGI PhotoSuite, Iomega QuikSync software (30-day trial version) and Adobe ActiveShare software. Also included in the package are one CD-R disc, audio cable, data cable and an external power supply.

The Predator began sipping to North American distributors this weekend and is expected to be available worldwide by the second quarter. The FireWire Predator is available for $329.95. A separate FireWire interface adapter will also be available later this month for $79.95. For more information, visit http://www.iomega.com.
