Main Menu
This section provides an overview of the menu options. These menu options are explained in
detail in the Using the QD Series Duplicator section starting on page 9.
Copy
Use the Copy menu to duplicate your master discs. Before you start a copy, make sure
you have selected the correct Master Source.
Test
Use the Test menu to simulate the copy process. With simulation, write once recordable
discs such as DVD-R, or CDR will be reusable.
Note: DVD+R and BD recordable media are not compatible with simulation mode. If
you try to simulate using one of these media types, you will encounter failure
messages. If you are using Rewritable discs as your blank media during the
simulation, the content on those discs will be permanently erased.
Compare
Use the Compare function to perform a bit-by-bit comparison between the content of your
master disc and the contents of all discs it copied. This ensures that all of your copies are
identical to original master disc.
Note: The bit-by-bit comparison will only apply on all BD and DVDs and Data CDs. The
readability check will be applied for other formats like Audio CDs and Video CDs
discs due to their lack of error correction mechanisms.
Test + Copy
Use the Test + Copy menu option to simulate the copying process initially. Then, the
duplicator performs the copy process on the blank disc(s) that passed the simulation.
Copy + Compare
Use the Copy + Compare menu option to make 100% reliable copies. After the copy
process is done, the duplicator automatically compares the copies from the content of
your original master disc.
Select Burn Speed
Use the Select Burn Speed menu option to adjust the duplication speed for the various
blank disc formats. For additional information, see Select Burn Speed on page 10.
Select Source
Use the Select Source menu option to specify which drive is being used as the master
drive.
Erase
Use the Erase menu to erase your Rewritable discs.
Mix Audio Tracks
Use the Mix Audio Tracks menu option to select and burn specific tracks from Audio CDs
onto your blank CDs.
Setup
Use the Setup menu options to control how the Duplicator operates. You can scroll
between the various options using the ▲ Up or ▼ Down button.

AutoCopy
The AutoCopy function simplifies the copy process. After the initial round of blanks is
burned, you only need to load the drives again and close them. Once the drives detect
the new blank media in the drives, duplication begins without you having to touch the
control panel.
Shutdown
Use this menu option to turn off your system. Once you see the “Ready to Power Off”
message, you can safely turn off the machine using the power switch. Turning off your
duplicator without performing this function increases the risk of damaging it.
Setting Counters
The BD-121 gives you the option to set a counter so that the machine can keep track of the
number of copies made. Follow these steps when you see a Counter Selection Menu:
The Counter Selection Menu lets you set how many copies you want to
make for your project. The Counter Selection feature tells the duplicator
Counter:
to count the number of successful copies you have made and stop the
No Counter
job when the desired number of copies has been reached.
You can select “No Counter” if you prefer to copy continuously with no interruption. (It will still
count the number of copies, but it will not notify you when to stop.) To select the “No Counter”,
simply press the ENT button when you see the screen above.
Or, you can select “Specify Counter” between 1 to 9999 by pressing the ▲ Up or ▼ Down button
to go to the Specify Counter menu:
Counter:
Specify Counter
Press the ENT button to select this option. You will see the next
Specify Counter menu.

8. Erase
recorder drives. The Erase function has 2 options:
¾ Full Erase: This option erases the entire disc,
destroying all previously written data in the process.
¾ Quick Erase: This option erases the index (TOC) of the Rewritable disc, not the data
section. It is much faster than Full Erase. However, the data section is still recoverable.
If you prefer the old content not to be recovered for security purpose, please perform
Full Erase.
Mix Audio Tracks
You can use the Mix Audio Tracks feature to combine specific
tracks from multiple audio CD masters onto a single disc. Insert
your first master disc and at least one blank, then press ENT when

tracks from the master by using the ▼▲ buttons to navigate through the tracks and pressing ENT
to select the tracks you want to burn.
The top line of the display will show the number of tracks currently
selected and the total time of selected tracks. The bottom line of
the display will show the track number and time for the current
track.
If a track is selected for the audio mix, the bottom line will begin
with an asterisk ( * ). In the example to the right, 4 tracks have
been selected, totaling 12 minutes 43 seconds; track 6 is 3
minutes and 56 seconds in length and has been selected for
burning, as indicated by the asterisk.
Total: 0 Trk 0m:00s
Track 1: 4m:24s
Total: 4 Trk 12m:43s
*Track 6: 3m:56s
When you use the ▼▲ buttons to go past the last track, you will be asked if you are done. Press
ENT to burn the selected tracks from the current master to the blank media, or ESC to add more
tracks from the same master. If you want to add tracks from another audio CD, you will have to
burn the selected tracks from the current master before doing so.
After pressing ENT to burn the tracks, you will be asked if you are finished mixing. If you are,
press ENT and the burned discs will be finalized. If you want to add tracks from another audio
CD, press ESC and you will be asked to insert the next master. Follow the same procedure to

may have changed in the Setup menu, it also shuts down the
duplicator components in a safe way.
Microboards B.30
13. Shutdown
When the display reads Ready to Power OFF after selecting the Shutdown function, you can use
the power switch on the front.
The Setup Menu
The Setup menu includes many settings the user can select to customize the use of the BD-121
duplicator. A description of the options in the setup menu follows.
Note: Any changes made to these settings will not be preserved on the next reboot if you
do not either use the Shutdown menu or manually Save the settings under the
Utilities menu.
Language
The BD-121 duplicator has multiple language options, with English being the default setting.
Auto Start
The Auto Start feature is used to automatically start recording, once the master disc and blank
discs are inserted into the drives. The Auto Start feature applies to Copy, Test, Test + Copy,
Copy + Compare, and Erase.
There are 3 options for this setting, Auto, Full, and Off.
• Auto: Starts the duplication process when all detect recordable media or 30 seconds has
passed after the first blank disc is recognized, allowing you to leave some recorders
empty while still using the Auto Start feature
• Full: Only starts the duplication when all drives report media as being present.
• Off: You must press the ENT button to begin the duplication process, regardless of the
number of discs loaded.
Read Error Skip
With Read Error Skip OFF, the duplicator will halt any job when the reader encounters an error on
your master disc. By changing this setting to ON, duplication will continue after finding a read
error on the master. Please note that this does not fix the error, and may result in unusable
discs.
It is strongly recommended that you do not change this setting from the default value of OFF.
CD Writing Mode
This setting allows you to change the CD writing mode between the 2 options, Disc at Once and
Track at Once. The default setting is Disc at Once, which should be used unless you have a
specific need to change the mode.
Max Audio, VCD, CDG Speed
Audio CD and Video CD disc formats do not have internal error checking capabilities, so
duplicating at high speeds may cause more instances of errors on the copies. This setting allows
you to reduce the burn speed of these specific types of discs without lowering the burn speed of
Data CD discs.
Buzzer
The Buzzer function will turn the beeper on the controller ON or OFF. Using the default of ON, a
beep is heard when a button is pressed or when any job completes.
Startup Menu
Allows you to specify what the default menu item will be when the BD-121 is turned on.
12
BD-121
Screen Saver
Use this setting to enable or disable the Screen Saver feature. When this is enabled, a screen
saver is displayed whenever your duplicator has been idle for a set period of time.
Duplication Mode
This setting cannot be changed.
Counter
Use the Counter menu to enable or disable the Counter feature. The counter tells you how many
discs have copied and how many discs are left to go during the duplication process stopping the
job once the desired number of copies has been made.
DVD+R High Compatibility Mode
This feature allows you to turn the DVD+R High Compatibility Mode feature ON or OFF. The
purpose of this feature is to increase the compatibility of DVD+R media with a broader range of
DVD Video players.
ISRC
This option will allow you to enable/disable copying the ISRC code of an Audio CD. ISRC is the
serial number of the audio track that uniquely identifies the song in that audio track. This ISRC
code is commonly found in commercial Audio CDs and rarely seen on home made Audio CDs. By
enabling this feature, the duplication performance will be lowered.
Disable Drives
This utility allows you to disable specific drives when they are producing high failure rates. Note
that if one drive is disabled, however, the BD-121 will no longer have enough drives available to
duplicate from your master to a blank disc. This function should not be used.
External Connection
Use this setting to enable the bottom recorder drive to be used as an external drive connected to
your PC via a USB 2.0 connection. Please note that while this setting is ON, the BD-121 cannot
be used as a duplicator, as no target drive will be available.
To connect the bottom drive to your PC, you will need to connect your PC and the
duplicator using the supplied USB cable. Plug the flat end of the USB cable to your
PC and the square end to the connection on the back of the duplicator, shown to
the right.
Select the Setup menu and use the ▼▲ buttons and press the ENT button the display reads
External Connection. If the display indicates that the connection is OFF, use either arrow key to
change the setting to ON, then press ENT to save the setting. The duplicator will be briefly
unresponsive as the bottom drive is released from duplication mode. Press ESC to leave the
Setup menu.
To shut off the External Connection, simply change the External Connection setting to OFF. This
setting can be changed any time both the tower and bottom drive are idle, but you may need to
remove any media from the bottom drive before the drive will be recognized again. You do not
need to disconnect the USB cable.
CD+G Support
Due to BluRay drive limitations, this feature is not supported on the BD-121, and the setting
should remain OFF.

Microboards Technology, LLC
The Utilities Menu
A description of the options in the Utilities menu follows. Use the ▼▲ buttons to scroll through
the menu, pressing the ENT button when the display shows the function you want to perform.
Disc Info
The Disc Info function will display the information regarding the blank recordable media you have
loaded in the recorders. The media format, capacity, manufacture ID, and certified writing speed
of the media will be displayed.
Information regarding any master disc loaded into the reader drive will also be displayed.
Load your media into the drives before pressing ENT when the display shows Disc Info. Each
drive will be checked to see if media is present. If all drives are not filled, you will be shown the
number of discs detected and be prompted to press the ENT again.
Use the ▼▲ buttons to scroll through the drives in which media has been detected.
Prescan
The Prescan function is used to verify the readability of the master disc by scanning for bad
sectors on the master. Performing the Prescan on your masters before duplicating will help
reduce the number of duplication failures caused by a master that contains uncorrectable errors.
You should load your master into the source drive prior to pressing the ENT button when the
display shows Prescan. Your master will be scanned, with the results being displayed when the
analysis is complete.
If the results show that the master disc Failed, you should not attempt to use that master as a
source disc.
System Info
The System Info menu selection displays the model and firmware versions of the installed
controller. Use the ▼▲ buttons to scroll through the system information.
Device Info
The Device Info menu selection displays the model and firmware versions of the drives installed

Load Default
This option restores all Setup and Advanced Setup options to the default settings, as well as the
default Burn Speed and the selected Source drive settings.
Update Firmware
Use the Update Firmware menu option to update the programming on your Duplicator. To update
the firmware, you will need to have the correct firmware file burned to a CD.
Please note that “drag-and-drop” burn methods such as the Windows XP burn utility generally will
not be recognized as valid as the disc format they create is not recognizable by the duplicator.
Use a disc burning application such as the Zulu2 Disc Burning application provided with your BD121 to burn the Update files to a CD.
Firmware Updates should only be performed after contacting Technical Support to ensure
that you are attempting to install the correct firmware for your duplicator.
Save
This function will save any system settings that you have changed since the last time the
duplicator was booted. This function is part of the process that occurs when you run the
Shutdown process from the Shutdown menu.

Description and Recommended Solutions
A valid firmware file was not detected on the disc during a
Firmware Update attempt.
1. Confirm the file on the disc is not a “zip” file. If
so, extract the file and burn to another disc.
2. Confirm that the update disc was burned as a
“Mode 1” Data CD. Drag-and-drop burn methods
such as the Windows XP burn utility generally do
not use this format and will not be recognized as
valid.
3. Verify that there are no other discs loaded into
the duplicator. Insert the update disc in another
drive tray and repeat.
The Firmware Update File is either not compatbe with
your duplicator or is corrupted.
Download and burn Update File again. Contact Tech
Support if this error persists.
The Firmware Update File is not intended for your
duplicator.
Contact Tech Support for the correct file. Have
Duplicator Model and Serial Number available.
A duplication job has been deliberately cancelled by the
user by pressing the ESC button for more than 5 seconds
during a duplication attempt.
Once the reason for cancellation has been corrected,
restart the job after replacing any partially burned
media.
