About MF DIGITAL
Thank you for purchasing MF DIGITAL’s Scribe SA Standalone autoloading CD / DVD duplicator. MF DIGITAL manufactures a wide variety
of CD / DVD duplication equipment, including manual and fully automated
CD and DVD duplicators and printers. We hope you will consider us for all
of your duplication needs.
What To Expect From Your MF DIGITAL CD / DVD Duplicator
Your MF DIGITAL Scribe SA Standalone duplicator is professionally
designed and manufactured to give you years of trouble free operation. To
avoid accidental damage to your new duplicator, please read and
understand this manual thoroughly before operating the unit.
About This Manual
This manual is written for both novice and experienced users. Please read
through this Operator’s Guide from beginning to end before using the unit.
Once having read the manual, follow along chapter by chapter. This will
provide the necessary understanding of your new Scribe SA Standalone
duplicator.
Page 6
Getting Started
Carefully remove the Scribe SA Standalone duplicator from the shipping
container. Inspect the contents, and verify them against the packing slip.
Report any errors in shipping as soon as possible.
What’s In The Box
Your new Scribe SA Standalone duplicator includes:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Scribe SA Standalone duplicator
Power cord
Firmware CD
Manuals CD
Operator’s Guide (on CD)
Quick Connect Guide
Packing Materials
Please retain the original box and packaging in the event that the unit
requires future servicing. This will help to reduce the possibility of damage
occurring in transit. Should you lose or misplace your carton, a new one
will need to be purchased from MF Digital.
The Best Place To Put The Scribe SA Standalone
The best operating location for the Scribe SA duplication system is in a
climate controlled area, free of dirt, dust, humidity, excessive heat, and
electronic or electromagnetic interference. Room temperature should be
between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, or between 18 and 23 degrees
Celsius. Place the Scribe SA on a solid, steady work surface and allow
sufficient room for all incidental work materials. Provide at least six inches
of clearance on all sides of the unit for ventilation.
Like all automated copiers, the Scribe uses photo sensors that can be
adversely affected by direct light sources. Avoid placing the system in
direct sunlight, under halogen or mercury vapor lights, or other close and
very bright light sources. If your Scribe is behaving erratically, and it is in
close proximity to bright light, or focused lighting such as spot lights, try
moving it to an area with more subdued lighting. If the unit operates
normally, then you may need to remove or adjust the light source, or
relocate the Scribe to a different spot.

Document Revision: 05/31/06
Safety Precautions
The system is shipped with a three-prong power connector, and must be
used with a properly grounded AC receptacle. DO NOT try to defeat the
third “ground” prong. All computer peripherals must be properly grounded,
and the Scribe SA Standalone is no exception. The use of a power
conditioner, such as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) or a surge
protector, is highly recommended. The minimum required size is 500VA.
Repairs or alterations should only be attempted by authorized, factorytrained technicians. MF DIGITAL reserves the right to void the warranty if
unauthorized service is performed.

Removing Packing Restraints
The Scribe SA Standalone ships with a picker arm restraint to reduce the
possibility of damage in transit. This restraint must be removed before
operation or power-on. Gently remove the zip tie and foam from around the
transfer arm. Save the foam tube, as you will need to return it to its place
when transporting the unit in the future.
Input Bin and Output Spindle
The input bins and the output spindle serve as the containers to store from
250 discs up to 600 discs depending on printer option. The input bins
become output bins once the output spindle is full.
System Startup
Before duplicating can begin it is necessary to review a few details.
• Verify that the voltage selector switch is set correctly. It is located
between the two power receptacles. The Scribe SA Standalone supports
both 115 VAC and 230 VAC at 50 ~ 60 Hz. Please confirm that the
appropriate voltage (115 VAC for North America) has been selected.
• Next, plug one end of the supplied power cord into the receptacle at the
rear of the unit.

CAUTION
Always use properly grounded receptacles or severe damage to
your system may result. The use of a surge protector or

Creating A Hard Disk Image
The Scribe SA Standalone comes equipped with an internal hard disk drive,
which can be used to store copies of master discs for later recording or
comparing. Each master is saved as a single image file. Up to six images
can be stored on the hard disk at one time. The image file is store uniquely
on the internal hard disk drive as an .IMG file.
A hard disk image is useful as a convenient way of copying standard master
discs. For example, create hard disk images for three or four master discs
which are needed on a regular basis, and access them to make copies as
required.
Creating A Single Hard Disk Image
Although the Scribe SA Standalone’s internal hard disk can store up to six
images of master discs, it is sometimes prudent not to use this Multiple
Image feature and only allow one image to be created and stored. For
example, using a single image simplifies the copying process. This reduces
the chance that an operator might make copies of the wrong master by
selecting the incorrect hard disk image.
To create a single hard disk image (multiple images disabled), the steps are
as follows:
• From the main operating screen depicted below:
• Press the “COPY” key. The screen will now read:

The master disc is now stored as an image on the hard disk
Note: If the master failed to copy to the hard drive properly, the
master disc will be placed in the reject area in front of the
drives. These discs should not be used.
•
Press the “Start/Yes” key, and you will be returned to the main operating
screen:
Note: When the Multiple Images feature is disabled, only one image
can be saved on the hard disk. If a new image is created, the
old image is overwritten.
