Welcome!
Thank you for buying this Disc Makers duplicator. The Reflex DVD
and CD duplicator will make it easier than ever to duplicate vast
quantities of discs. This manual contains detailed information
about using all the features in your stand-alone Reflex duplicator.
******************************************************
Before you start:
Before you start using this duplicator, please read the following to
ensure proper operation:
1. DVD Duplication Limitations:
This duplicator, it will not copy any DVD that has Copy
Protection encoded inside. DVDs you purchase or rent from a
store will be Copy Protected.
In addition to the copy protection limitation, the duplicator
will only copy a DVD-5 format (4.7GB) disc to DVD-5 format
(4.7GB) recordable DVD media. If your duplicator has double
layer capability, you can copy a DVD-9 format (8.5GB) disc to
DVD-9 format (8.5GB) recordable DVD media. You cannot
duplicate a DVD5 format disc to a DVD9 format recordable
media or vice versa.
2. Temperature Warning:
If the duplicator was stored in a location where the
temperature dropped below 32ðF (0ðC) within the past 24
hours, please leave the duplicator in a warm room with
temperatures at least 65ðF (19ðC) for 4 hours prior to
powering it on for the first time. Failure to do so may cause
irreparable harm and prevent the duplicator from functioning.

Reflex Duplicator Manual
3. Maintenance:
It is very important to operate and keep the duplicator in a
dust free, clean environment since dust is the number 1 killer
for CD/DVD recording devices. Failure to do so may severely
damage your duplicator. We strongly suggest you place an
Air Cleaner next to the duplicator and constantly use the Air
Duster (Can Air) to clear off any dust on the surface of the
duplicator.
Do not try to use Air Duster to clean the
duplicator while the reader/writer trays are open.
In doing so, you may inadvertently blow dust
into the recording device and damage the
recording device.
4. Proper Shutdown:
To avoid possible system failures the duplicator must be
shutdown properly. To shutdown the duplicator, use the UP or
DOWN arrow keys or the ‘Shutdown“ hot key and follow
instructions on the screen. Turning off your duplicator without
performing this function will increase the risk of damaging
your duplicator.

requested, you will receive a message regarding
you have inserted more discs than what you need.
You can continue to copy or you can eject the
extras.
If you happen to have any failed discs (bad copy),
the failed disc(s) will not be ejected automatically.
You need to manually eject them and throw them
away if they are write once recordable disc(s).
II. Make Hard Drive(HDD)-to-Disc Copies
Copying from the Hard Drive is the best way to make copies!
There are 3 benefits to copying from the Hard Drive:
i.
Performance ñ Duplicating from the Hard Drive will be
able to boost the DVD duplication speed.
ii.
Stability ñ Duplicating from Hard Drive will stabilize the
duplication process compared to the Disc to Disc
process.
iii.
Convenience ñ With your master discs stored inside the
Hard Drive, you can have access to each one easily.
There is no need to carry your master discs; they are all
stored inside the duplicator.
Your built-in Hard Drive will be divided into a number of
partitions. Each partition will hold ONE and ONLY ONE
master disc regardless of the capacity of your master disc.
The number of partitions is determined by dividing your Hard
Driveís total capacity by 1GB for CD format, 5GB for DVD-5
format or 9GB for DVD-9 format (Double Layer) and
subtracting one partition for system use.
The following steps will show you how to load your master
disc into the installed Hard Drive as a disc image and copy the
stored disc image into several blank discs. This process is
recommended for large volume production.

Select the Duplication Speed
This process will allow you to adjust the duplication speed
subject to your various needs.
NOTES
By default, the duplication speed will be set to the optimal
speed. However, under some circumstances, you might want
to lower the duplication speed. Those circumstances are as
follows:
•
Blank Media Compatibility ñ When your media
compatibility is not good, lowering the duplication
speed is necessary to make good copies.
•
Poor Master Disc Quality ñ If your master disc
condition is not good, lowering the duplication
speed will reduce failure rates.
•
Duplication Quality ñ The lower the burn speed, the
higher the quality of your duplicates. When you have
time, it is a good choice to lower down the speed to
produce the best quality duplicates.
When you turn on your duplicator, after it has booted up, you
should see the following signifying your duplicator is ready.

Load Master Disc onto the Hard Drive
In order to copy from the Hard Drive, you are required to load
your master disc onto a hard drive partition.
After loading your master disc to the Hard Drive,
please make sure to remove your master disc from
the Master Reading Tray. Failure to do so might
cause improper duplication.
NOTES
The number of partitions is determined by dividing your Hard
Driveís total capacity by 1GB for CD format, 5GB for DVD-5

one partition for system use.
For example, if you have a 40GB Hard Drive, you can calculate
the number of DVD-5 format partitions by: 40 / 5 = 8. Since there
is 1 partition reserved for the system use, you will have 7
partitions to use.

VIII. Changing the Hard Drive Partition Size
If you have a 16x speed or higher duplicator with double
layer/dual layer DVD9 capability, the hard drive partitions are
set at the default size of 9GB each to accommodate for the
expanded size of the DVD9 format. If you require more
partitions and do not plan on utilizing double layer/dual layer
DVD9 media, you will need to change the Hard Drive partition
size to 5GB. Please keep in mind that if you alter the
partition size, all previous data/video stored on the hard drive
will be lost and you will only be able to load media with less
than specified partition size capacity.

Introduction to Duplication Mode
In order to achieve 8x or higher duplication performance;
there are 3 factors that need to be certified as 8x or higher
speed:
1. Master Disc Reading Speed
2. Computer Controlling Speed
3. Recorder Writing Speed*
*The recordable media must be certified 8x or higher
in order to have 8x or higher recorder writing speed.
If any or all of the above 3 factors fail to meet the 8x or up
higher certification, under any circumstances, you will
encounter bottleneck symptoms which will delay your
duplication time and reduce your duplication quality.
When making duplications directly from the master disc to
the blank disc; you often cannot maintain true 8x speed
throughout the duplication process. Unfortunately, due to
physical recordable DVD limitations, most DVD master
discs can not be read at 8x or higher speeds continuously.
Often the reader will fall behind the burners and the whole
process will have to slow down.
In order to avoid this issue, first load the master disc into
the hard drive and make all duplications through the hard
drive. To duplicate form the Hard Drive, you need to load
your DVD master disc into a Hard Drive partition. Once
loaded, make copies from the Hard Drive partition as you
would from the master disc. This process can be a little
complicated and requires certain knowledge of the
duplicator in order to operate.
- 58 -
t
Reflex Duplicator Manual
To simplify this process for anyone, we introduced a new
feature called “Load and Copy“ under the new category
“Duplication Mode“. This feature reduces the
“Duplication from Hard Drive“ process to a single step!
There are two features under “Duplication modes“:
t
Reflex Duplicator Manual
duplications from the reserve partition will be with
the new image.
Advantage:
Faster duplication in a long run.
(Un-Restricted DVD Duplication speed supported
by the duplication blank media)
Stable duplication.
Reliable duplication
On the Fly:
This mode instructs the duplicator to copy directly
from the master disc. The duplicator performs
simultaneous read and write operations without
any delays.
Advantage:
Ideal for small quantity quick duplication.
Disadvantage:
Requires a master disc for each and every run.
(Could be harmful for the master disc)
Maximum DVD duplication speed is typically
limited to 4x or 6x.
Requires the master disc to be in excellent
condition for error free duplication.
Load and Copy:
This mode instructs the duplicator to load your
master disc into the built-in hard drive reserve
partition and make the requested quantity of
copies directly from the hard drive. The image will
remain stored in the reserve partition, available for
future duplications of the same project until you
perform this feature again with a new master.
Once a new master is used for Load and Copy, the
new image will override the previous image and all
- 59 -
Disadvantage:
The loading time may have an impact on overall
duplication time for small duplication jobs.
The master disc will be loaded to the reserve
partition in the Hard Drive temporarily until a new
master is loaded and overrides the previous image.
In comparing this duplication mode with the traditional
“Duplication from Hard Drive“ process, it offers the user more
simplicity. By selecting the “Load and Copy“ mode via one
simple touch, all the necessary tasks will be automated for you.
However, in bypassing the standard “Duplication from Hard
Drive“ process, you cannot use the Partition naming feature and
the image will only remain until itís overridden by using load and
copy from another master disc.
By default, the duplication mode is set to “Auto“. This will
prompt you to choose between one of the duplication
modes when you enter any of the following functions:
“Copy“, “Test“, “Test + Copy“, and “Copy + Compare“.
If you prefer not to be prompted each time you may set
your preference by following the instructions below.
