Welcome!
Our duplicator is a reliable, high performance, high speed,
standalone CD and/or DVD duplicator. With its professional
industrial design and simple beginner user interface, it will make
your duplicating experience easier than ever.
******************************************************
Before you start:
Before you start using this duplicator, please read the following to
ensure proper operation:
1. Important Notice:
If you have purchased a CD duplicator, your duplicator will
duplicate CDs ONLY. However, if you have purchased a DVD
duplicator, you duplicator will duplicate both DVDs and CDs.
2. DVD Duplication Limitations:
For a DVD Duplicator, it will not copy any DVD that has Copy
Protection encoded inside. Typically, most DVDs you purchase
or rent from a store, does contain Copy Protection.
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.
3. Temperature Warning:
If the duplicator was stored in a location where the temperature
dropped below 32°F (0°C) within the past 24 hours, please
leave the duplicator in a warm room with temperatures at least
65°F (19°C) 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.
-1-
4. External Connection Warning:
If you have an external connection installed in your duplicator,
you will see the USB/Firewire switch(s) on the back of your
duplicator, and/or USB/Firewire sticker(s) on your writer front
drive panel(s). In order to operate the duplicator solely as a
standalone unit (no connection to the computer), you have to
make sure all of the USB/Firewire connection light(s) on the
back of your duplicator are off. If by any chance, the
USB/Firewire connection light(s) are on, you need to follow
the following steps: 1. Turn off your duplicator. 2. Turn off the
USB/Firewire switch(s), 3. Turn on your duplicator. 4. Make
sure all the USB/Firewire lights are off.
5. 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 the 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.
6. Proper Shutdown:
To avoid possible system failures, you need to shutdown the
duplicator properly. To shutdown the duplicator, you need to
press “>>” button to “15. Shutdown” and follow instructions
on the screen to shutdown the duplicator properly. Turning off
your duplicator without performing this function will increase
the risk of damaging your duplicator.
-2-
7. Double Layer Partition Issue
Attention: 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, Please refer to “Tutorial VIII:
Changing Hard Drive Partition Size.” 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 5GB capacity such as DVD5 (4.7GB), CD
(700MB), etc.

Tutorial Guide:
II. Make Hard Drive(HDD)-to-Disc Copies (For Duplicator w/
HDD installed)
Copying from the Hard Drive is the best way to make copies.
Overall, there are 4 benefits to copying from the Hard Drive:
i.
Performance – Duplicating from the Hard Drive will be
able to boost the DVD duplication speed to 8x or above.
ii.
Stability – Duplicating from Hard Drive will stabilize
the duplication process compared to the Disc to Disc
duplicating.
iii.
Durability – Hard Drive is a much better storage device
than DVD recordable discs. First of all, DVD recordable
discs are composed of chemical materials tend to
degrade over a period of time while Hard Drives are
made of magnetic disks which will last over 100 years.
Secondly, DVD recordable discs are often exposed and
can very easily be scratched on its surface, while Hard
Drives are covered with metal and mounted inside the
duplicator.
iv.
Convenience – 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.
If your duplicator has a Hard Drive installed, your built-in
Hard Drive will be divided into a number of partitions, or slots.
Each partition/slot 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
Drive’s 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.
- 12 -
For example, if you have a 40GB Hard Drive, then 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.
Or you can calculate the number of DVD-9 format partitions
by: 40 / 9 = 4.17. Since you cannot use an incomplete partition,
there will be a total of 4 partitions available for a 40GB Hard
Drive. Since 1 partition is reserved for system use; there will be
3 partitions available for 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 mass volume productions.
How to make copies from the Hard Drive?

Select the Duplication Speed
This process will allow you to adjust the duplication speed
subject to your various needs.
By default, the duplication speed will be set to the optimal
speed. However, under some circumstances, you might want
to lower down the duplication speed. Those circumstances are
as follows:
•
Poor Blank Media Quality – When your media quality
is not good, lowering down the duplication speed is
necessary to make good copies.
•
Poor Master Disc Quality – If your master disc
condition is not good, lowering down the duplication
speed will reduce the failure rates greatly.
•
Duplication Quality – Overall, the lower the speed, the
higher the quality of your duplicates. If you have time,
it is a good choice to lower down the speed to produce
the best quality duplicates.

Select the Master Reading Source
When you try to make a copy, you need to specify where the
master disc is. Is it in the Reader tray? Or is it an Image inside
the Hard Drive? This tutorial will show you how to change
the Master Reading Source to satisfy your needs.
Basically, there are 3 scenarios that require you to select the
Master Reading Source.
• Disc-to-Disc copy (read for READER tray) – This is the
case when you would normally make copies on the fly.
You need to set the “Reader” as your Master Reading
Source.
• Hard Drive-to-Disc copy (if Hard Drive installed) – If you
want to make copies from your Hard Drive Image, you
need to select the source as “Hard Drive”.
There are four benefits to copy from Hard Drive:
i. Performance – Duplicating form the Hard Drive
will be able to boost the DVD duplication speed to
8x or above.
ii. Stability – Duplicating from Hard Drive will
stabilize the duplication process compared to the
Disc to Disc duplicating.
iii. Durability – Hard Drive is a much better storage
device than DVD recordable discs. First of all,
DVD recordable discs are composed of chemical
materials tend to degrade over a period of time
while Hard Drives are made of magnetic disks
which will last over 100 years. Secondly, DVD
recordable discs are often exposed and can very
easily be scratched on its surface, while Hard
Drives are covered with metal and mounted inside
the duplicator.
- 27 -
iv.
Convenience – 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.
• Disc-to-Disc copy (read for WRITER tray) – This is the
case when your master disc is full of scratches. You
would need to use the Writer Tray as your Master
Reading Source to make a copy and use the new copy as
your new master to make more copies.
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.
The number of partitions is determined by dividing your Hard
Drive’s total capacity by 1GB for CD format, 5GB for DVD-5
format or 9 GB for DVD-9 format (Double Layer) and subtracting
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.
Or you can calculate the number of DVD-9 format partitions by:
40 / 9 = 4.17. Since you cannot use an incomplete partition, there
will be a total of 4 partitions available for a 40GB Hard Drive.
Since 1 partition is reserved for system use; there will be 3
partitions available for use.
To load your master disc onto a hard drive partition, please do the
following:
1.
Make sure the Master Reading Source is set to the Hard
Drive.
It is very important to make sure the Master Reading Source
is set for the Hard Drive in order to avoid unnecessary error

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 Account Management Feature
This feature allows you, the administrator, to have the power to:
1. Create user accounts and passwords to prevent
unauthorized use of this duplicator.
2. Edit existing user account information, including
name and password.
3. Delete existing user account(s).
4. Enable/Disable this feature.
This feature is disabled by default. Prior to activating the “account
management” feature, the duplicator recognizes all users as the
only activated user defined as the administrator. The pre-defined
password for this function is “0000”.
By adding additional users, each individual user will have his/her
own settings and have access to hard drive partitions he/she loaded
to the hard drive. No one else will have the permission other than
the Administrator.
For example, if USER1 logged-in and loaded a master disc to the
hard drive partition (Partition A); if USER2 logs-in, USER2 will
not have access to any partition loaded by USER1, which includes
partition A.
To take advantage of this feature, follow the below instructions:
1. Change the Administrator password. Please refer to
Feature Overview “3. Edit User Info” below for
more information.
2. Create a User Name and Password for every
authorized person on this duplicator. Please refer to

Tutorial Guide
XII.
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.
- 59 -
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”:
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
duplications from the reserve partition will be with
the new image.
- 60 -
Advantage:
Faster duplication in a long run.
(Un-Restricted DVD Duplication speed supported
by the duplication blank media)
Stable duplication.
Reliable duplication
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 it’s 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”.
However, if you prefer not to be prompted each time, you
can always go to “12. Setup” and select menu 14 and
manually reset it. To do so, please follow the below steps:
When you turn on the duplicator, you shall see following:

COPY
This menu will guide you to make CD/DVD copies. Before
you enter this menu to copy, please make sure you have
selected the correct Master Reading Source. For more
information, please refer to “Tutorial Guide I – Make Discto-Disc Copies” or “Tutorial Guide II – Make Hard
Drive(HDD)-to-Disc Copies”
2.
TEST
This menu will guide you to make simulation of copying
process. During this simulation process, all write once
recordable discs such as (DVD-R, CD-R) will be reusable.
The purpose of performing such simulation is to ensure error
free duplication.
Due to the physical limitation of DVD+R recordable
format, you can not perform this procedure if your
recordable discs are DVD+R. If you do so, you will
encounter failure messages.
If you are using CD/DVD ReWritable discs as your
blanks media during the simulation, all of the content
inside those discs will be ereased permanently.
3.
COMPARE
This menu will guide you to perform a bit-by-bit comparison
between the Master Reading Source and all the copied discs
inside the writer tray. The purpose to perform this compare
operation is to ensure all of your copies have the exactly same
information as your Master Reading Source.
- 64 -
4.
TEST + COPY
This menu will guide you to perform the simulation of
copying process and if everything has passed during the
simulation, a real copying process will be performed. If
there’s an error encountered during the simulation, an error
message will be displayed and the copying process will not be
initiated.
5.
COPY + COMPARE
This menu will guide you to make copies for you and after the
copy process has been finished, it will perform an additional
comparison process automatically to ensure data correctness.
6.

12. SETUP
12.1 Language
This setting will allow you to choose which language you
prefer to navigate this duplicator. Currently, both Spanish
and English languages are supported.
12.2 Auto Start
This setting will allow you to choose Auto, Full or Off.
When it is Full, This feature will allow the duplicator to
copy automatically once your master disc and all of the
writer trays of the duplicator are fulfilled with recordable
media.
- 66 -
When it is Off, the copy process requires you to press
“>>” button to confirm the duplication.
When it is Auto, if your duplicator has detected 3 blank
discs on a 4 target or higher duplicator for example and
didn’t detect any additional blank discs for 30 seconds,
then the duplication will be started automatically.
However, in order for this feature to take effect, you need
to be inside the operation menu such as COPY, TEST,
TEST+COPY, and COPY+COMPARE.
12.3 Read Error Skip
Normally, when the duplicator encountered a reading
error while reading your master disc, all the duplication
will be aborted and all the recordable media will be
ruined. However, if you believe that your master disc has
a small, insignificant error due to physical damages, you
can enable the setting to allow the duplicator to skip any
read error* it has encountered.
*This function will not fix the error; it will only skip it to
make the rest of the data readable.
12.4 CD Writing Mode
This setting will allow you to select which mode you
would like to duplicate a CD. There are two different
modes, “Disc at Once” and “Track at Once”. Unless you
understand completely what they mean, we strongly
suggest you to set it as “Disc at Once”.
12.5 Max Audio & VCD Speed
Audio CD’s and Video CD’s do not have internal error
checking capability, so duplicating at too high a speed
may cause frequent errors. This setting will allow you to
adjust the maximum duplication speed for Audio and
Video CD.

feature, a screen saver will be displayed when your
duplicator has been idle for a long period of time.
12.9 Duplication Mode
To simplify Hard Drive loading and copying process for
anyone, we introduced a new feature called “Load and
Copy” in addition to “On the Fly” under the new category
“Duplication Mode”.
This feature reduces the “Duplication from Hard Drive”
process to a single step!
For more information, please refer to “Tutorial Guide
XII – Introduction to Duplication Mode.”
12.10 Counter
This feature will allow you to enable/disable the Counter
feature by setting this feature ON or OFF. This feature
will notify you how many discs have been copied and
how many discs are left to go.
- 68 -
13. Utility
13.1 Disc Info
If you are uncertain about the type of blank recordable
media you are using, the duplicator is equipped with the
disc info function to help identify and notify you of the
disc information encoded within.
This function (Disc Info) can be found in the “Utility”
menu. This feature will identify your blank recordable
Media’s format, capacity, manufacture ID as well as the
Media’s certified writing speed.
- This feature only applies to media in the
recording trays.
13.2 Prescan
Approximately 50% of failures reported by our duplicator
are caused by errors in the master disc which our Reader
couldn’t overcome. When this kind of failure occurs, it
tends to waste all of your blank recordable medias.
To help detect flaws in the master disc prior to
performing the duplicating process, we introduce the
“Prescan” feature. This feature will scan and detect any
bad sectors existing in the master disc. It is
recommended to perform this feature before starting the
duplication task for all master discs. By doing so you can
prevent wasting the blank media if there is an error in the
master disc.
