How long will it take to copy a DVD?
Duplicating speed depends on the writing speed of the blank DVD media and the speed of your DVD drive used. The copying speed of a DVD duplicator cannot exceed the media’s maximum certified duplication speed. A typical time of duplicating a DVD is as follows:
a. 16X DVD Media => 5-7 min
b. 8X DVD Media => 10-12 min
c. 4X DVD Media => 20-30 min
d. 2X DVD Media => 40-60 min
Can your DVD duplicators copy music and DVD’s?
Yes, but the DVD master must be non-copyright protected.

What are the advantages of duplicating with the hard drive option?
To ensure quality burns at higher speed and to store data that you may need to duplicate again at a later time. By loading data into built-in hard drive enables duplication at the maximum speed with utmost stability result. The larger the hard drive, the more data you can store. All hard drives are divided into a number of partitions depends on the capacity which will hold exactly one DVD or CD regardless of the duration of the disc on each partition.
What can I do when the duplicator is having trouble reading a source CD
or master copy?
a. Please make sure discs are free of damage or scratches.
b. Pre-scan and test the disc for readability and reading speed.
c. Please select any drives as the source drive by using the “Select Src.” function, and place the source disc and try to read it from any of the CD recorders to determine if you have any bad drives.
d. If none of the above works, please contact our duplicator support department.
What should I do if my duplicator freezes during duplication?
If the duplicator gets too hot from duplicating for a very long period of time, please let the system rest for 30min. Place duplicator away from direct sunlight and position your unit in a cool environment helps for better operation.
How do I keep my duplicator clean?
The best way to keep your system clean is preventive maintenance. Using a system in a harsh environment with excessive dust, smoke, or other contaminants is not recommended. Some basic cleaning can be performed but there is no substitution for a clean environment. Compressed air cleaner can only apply to dust out your power supply. Do not open your system case.
Why do I get a read error when trying to duplicate a disc?
You are most likely running into copy protection. The disc publisher has placed "unreadable" sectors on the disc in an effort to confound disc duplication programs. If you believe the disc is not copyright protected, then it might simply be dirty or scratched. You can try to clean the disc gently using a lint-free cloth, wiping from the center out.
Are the discs usable if recording fails?
That depends on what was being recorded, how it was being recorded, and how far along in the process were. If it failed while writing the lead-in, before any data was written, the disc probably is still usable.
Can DVD players read CD-Rs?
The only discs that a DVD player is guaranteed to read most of the time are DVD discs. Support for CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW may be included in the DVD players, but are not guaranteed. For more information, please contact technical support department.
