UnderRun Protect
The UnderRun Protect feature allows the recorder to use Burn Proof during recording. This
setting defaults to ON and should remain on. This feature protects against making “coasters” or
bad discs. Again, this setting should always remain ON.
Overburn
The default setting for this feature is OFF. This feature is not supported by the QD-DVD
MultiDrive duplicator. Overburn can be used with certain CD recorders, allowing more data to be
burned to the disc.
Read Error Skip
The Read Error Skip feature is used if you wish to ignore read errors during duplication. The
default setting is OFF and it is highly recommended that this setting is not changed. If it is turned
ON, there is the possibility of creating discs that are not the same as the master.
Burn-in
The Burn-in function is used to test the operation of the QD-DVD MultiDrive duplicator and is for
service purposes only. This function should only be used if directed by Microboards Technical
Support.
Update Firmware
The Update Firmware feature is used to update the controller firmware.
1. To update the firmware: Place the firmware CD into the reader drive (top).
2. Press the ENT button
Update F/W

3. The display will show the current and update firmware
versions, as shown to the right:
To B.123 YES?
4. Press the ENT button to complete the firmware update.
5. The duplicator will reboot automatically after installing the new firmware.
Compare Firmware
The Compare Firmware function is used to compare the firmware installed on the controller with
the firmware on the CD.
H/W Diagnostic
Hardware Diagnostics runs a number of tests on the controller. Normally this function is used by
service personnel.
Load Default
The Load Default feature will set all the values back to the factory default settings.
ISRC & MCN
The ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) & MCN (Media Catalog Number) feature
allows you to copy this information from a CD audio master to the blank disc. The default is OFF.
Switch USB Mode
The Switch USB Mode allows you to enable or disable the ability to use the QD-DVD MultiDrive
recorder drive as an external burner for your PC. Selecting ON will allow access to the USB
Mode menu, which will appear as menu item 10. Selecting OFF will hide the option in the main
menu.
The QD-DVD MultiDrive cannot use any function while operating in USB Mode.
CD Text
This feature allows CD-Text content to be copied from master to blank. The default is OFF.
Disc Counter
This feature allows you to view the number of successful and unsuccessful burns. The JC OK
entry is for successful burns for the entire unit; you can also view the individual drive performance
by using the ▼▲ buttons.
Update Drive F/W
This feature is not used by the QD-DVD MultiDrive.
