Getting Started
Turning on the System
Plug the AC cord into the Talon Pro DVD/CD Duplicator and then into a wall outlet. Press the
ON/OFF button located in the bottom right corner of the tower unit. The LCD Panel display will
light up, indicator lights on each of the seven CD disc drives will flash momentarily, the ON
indicator light next to the ON/OFF button will be lit, and the system will indicate it is ready for
operation by emitting a three-tone beep.
About the LCD Panel Display
When you first turn the system on, the information displayed in the LCD Panel will indicate the
current mode of operation (load, copy, emulate, etc.)
copy
<mode
If copy is not displayed in the LCD Panel Display, press the STATUS button to cycle through
the list of operation modes (copy, copy+comp, emulate, load, compare, verify,
external) until copy is displayed. This will ensure that you are in the correct mode for the first
exercise presented in this manual, which is copying a CD to a CD (refer to page 5).
For Best Performance
All master CDs must be 16X quality. All master DVDs must be 4X quality. Use Talon Branded
Bulk Media (recommended for best performance), which are available in 300-disc cartons (six
50-disc spindle packs).

hard drive, how to copy seven CDs at a time, etc., once you have learned a
few of the basic procedures.

Copy
Use the Copy operation mode to copy from a partition on the hard disk or from a master CD or
DVD placed in the first CD/DVD drive. Before actually starting the copy operation, check your
sub-function settings. Here’s how:
§
Press and hold the STATUS button until it “chirps.” Then, when setup appears, press the
START button to review each sub-function setting. Use the STATUS button to change any
sub-function setting.
§
If you are copying from the hard drive, make sure the hdd partition sub-function displays
the correct partition in the hard drive. Also make sure the partition contains the correct data
before copying. (Refer to page 11 for instructions on how to load a CD into a partition on the
hard drive. Refer to page 35 for instruction on how to load a DVD into a partition on the hard
drive.)
§
If you are copying from a CD or DVD, make sure the CD to CD sub-function is set to Yes.
§
If you are copying audio and graphics or text, make sure the CD+G sub-function is set to Yes.
§
Press the START button until you can view the setup sub-function in the display panel.
Then press and hold the STATUS button until it “chirps” to return to the copy operation
mode.
When copying from a master CD or DVD, place the master in the top CD/DVD drive and blank
CDs or DVDs in the remaining CD/DVD drives. The full procedure for copying an audio CD is
provided starting on page 5. A full procedure for copying a Karaoke CD or any CD with text
and/or graphics is provided starting on page 21. A full procedure for copying DVDs is provided
starting on page 29.
When copying from a partition on the hard disk, place blank CDs or DVDs in the CD/DVD

Chapter 5: Functional Overview
Copy and Compare
The copy and compare (copy +comp) operation mode is used for data CDs. This operation
makes copies (as described in the copy operation above) and then compares the copies to the
master source (the hard disk image or the master CD). When you use this operation mode, the
discs that have been successfully duplicated will be temporarily ejected and then automatically
re-inserted for the compare operation. Discs that experience successful compare operations will
be ejected automatically after comparison. The failed CD discs will remain in the CD writers.
Press the STATUS button to eject the failed discs (if any).
To copy and compare using the CD to CD mode:
Ensure that the setup sub-functions are correct; i.e., make sure of the following:
§ CD to CD is set to Yes
§ Write method is set to Trk At Once
§ CD and G is set to Yes
§ All other sub-function settings are set to their default settings
Place the master CD in the CD reader (top CD drive).
Place blank CD(s) in the CD writer(s) drives. The system will automatically analyze the master
CD, display the number of megabytes, and display the total time of the CD (in minutes and
seconds).
When you are copying and comparing any less than seven CDs, you must press the START
button at the prompt, start>, where n is the number of CD drives that have blank CDs ready for
copying.
When you fill all six of the CD writers, the copy and compare operation starts automatically.
As the system performs the copy operation, it will display L and C status codes, where L
represents the number of minutes read, and C represents the number of minutes written. When
they both equal the total number of minutes of the CD, then the copy operation is complete.
The discs that have been successfully copied will be temporarily ejected, and then automatically
re-inserted for the compare operation. Again, the L status code represents the number of minutes
read from the master, and the C represents the number of minutes compared.
When the copy and compare operation is complete, you will hear a three-tone beep, the
successful copies will be automatically ejected, and the LCD display panel will indicate how
many CDs passed and how many failed:
PASS 1
FAIL 0
If for any reason the system does not start the analysis process, check the master CD for its
integrity.

Talon Pro DVD/CD Duplicator
Emulate
The emulate operation is used to test both the master CD and the image in the specified hard
drive partition. It is a rarely-used operation, but is useful to test the system after it has been
transported and set up. This operation “emulates” a copy operation. Blank discs and source disc
information must be in place (either on a CD or in the selected partition of the hard drive) and the
system will act as if it is copying but nothing will be actually copied.
Load
The load operation is used to copy a master CD or DVD into a partition on the hard drive. A
procedure describing how to load a CD is provided starting on page 11. A procedure describing
how to load a DVD is provided starting on page 35.
Compare
The compare operation is to be used with Data CDs only. It enables you to confirm that the data
on the master CD matches that of the copied CD.
Verify
The verify operation is to be used with audio and video CDs. It enables you to confirm that the
data on the master CD is OK for copying – either to a partition on the hard disk or to another CD.
External
The external operation is not used. It exists for future enhancements to the system involving an
external hard drive.

Mode 2 Compare
Under the ISO 9660 standard, a CD-ROM sector can be Mode 1 or Mode 2.
Mode 1 allocates 2048 bytes for user data, plus a third layer of error detection and error
correction codes. This is the Mode that provides the highest integrity for computer data.
Mode 2 allocates 2336 bytes for user data, and no third layer of error detection and error
correction. This mode is considered appropriate for segments of music, graphics and video,
especially in CD-ROM-XA and CD-I implementations.
If you want to verify that the information on the master CD matches that on the copy, then set this
sub-function to Yes, and the system will compare the two. The default for this sub-function is

CD
Short for compact disc, an optical disc storage format developed by
Philips and Sony.
CD Duplication
The process of making one or more copies of a compact disc.
CD+G
CD+Graphics. Audio, text and graphics used in the same application. This
type of disc is usually used for Karaoke machines.
CD-DA
Compact Disc-Digital Audio. A CD-DA disc contains tracks with audio
sectors only. In 1982 Philips and Sony introduced the necessary
technology for storing digital audio signals on a compact disc, and
introduced the CD-Digital Audio.
CD-R [Disc]
An acronym for compact disc-recordable which is a type of media that
allows you to record information using a CD Recorder.
CD-Recordable
CD-Recordable technology allows production of CD-ROMs on the
desktop ('one-offs'). It requires a PC, a CD-R recorder or drive,
appropriate software, and 'recordable' media. The reduction of prices for
this hardware and software, and their ease of use, has helped the growth of
CD-ROM production in-house. The 'one-off' is very different from the
mass- reproduced or 'hot-pressed' CDs. It is sold pre-grooved, in 63 or 74
minute capacities, and it involves a layered structure--with a sensitive
chemical recording layer, and almost always with a gold reflective layer.
Once recorded, the CD-R disc (one-off) performs in the same way as the
mass-reproduced CDs.
CD-ROM
Compact Disc-Read Only Memory. A standard for compact disc to be
used as a digital memory medium for personal computers. The

Compact Disc
CD stands for compact disc which is a general term for all formats of CD
media. CD formats available on the market now include CD Audio, CDROM, CD-ROMXA, Video CD, CD-I and others.
Compact Disc
Formats
During the last two decades several Compact Disc formats were developed
to serve different purposes and uses. Starting with the CD-DA format in
1980, as a way to distribute high quality music in a compact and
convenient format, the first compact disc standard was formulated. Then,
the idea of storing computer data on the same media, more than 10 years
ago, lead to a new format: the CD-ROM (along with CD). In the last few
years, the desire to store a whole new generation of multimedia
contents(audio, video, games, pictures etc.) demanded new formats: CDI,CD-XA, Photo-CD, Video-CD, CD+ etc. were invented.
Digital Audio
Although digital audio can have a variety of sampling rates and
quantization, the Red Book specifies CD-Digital Audio as being sampled
at 44.1KHz, and quantized at 16 bits/sample, for high quality stereo sound
(65,536 values).Therefore, sound of different quality, even if it is placed in
a CD, is not Red Book Digital Audio.
Digital Audio
Extraction
(DAE)
The process of copying CD-DA audio tracks digitally from your CDwriter or another CD-ROM drive, to a hard disk or to a recordable CD.
Not all CD-ROM drives support this.
Disc Read
Head--Disc
Write Head
Storage drives (magnetic and optical) have a head or heads that float over
the recorded area to read and write. Obviously, CD-ROM drives have only
a read head, which involves a low-intensity red laser diode (a.k.a. infrared
laser diode), lenses that focus the laser on the track, and others that
redirect the reflections to one of the photodiodes for appropriate decoding.
Some Write-Once and Rewritable optical drives involve two heads (to
write and read), while other drives, including CD-Recordable, use only
one head to do both--using a high-intensity blue argon laser for the write
function. For mass replication of CD-Audio, CD-ROM, and DVDs, the
glass master is produced by encoders that have special recording heads.
Disc-At-Once
(DAO)
A method of writing in which one or more tracks are written in a single
operation. The laser will not stop until the whole disc recording is finished
and the disc is closed - hence no clicks between audio tracks. Disc-atOnce has only been available with the recent generation of CD recorders
and recent firmware upgrades.

Glossary
Disk Sector
In magnetic disks, formatting provides a geography of the platters; which
are divided into concentric circles, and these circles are further subdivided
into sectors. Although sectors vary in size depending on their position in
the disk, they have a specific capacity in bytes. This sectored framework is
found in constant angular velocity (CAV) drives, and is compatible with
the FAT used in PCs. When discussing optical discs, 'sector' is used to
refer to discrete amounts of data with a specific layout or structure along
the single spiral track.
Emulate
To test the function of a disc on a computer after formatting a complete
disc image.
Enhanced CD
A general term for various techniques that add computer software to a
music CD, producing a disc which can be played in a music player or read
by a computer. Also called CD Extra, CD Plus, hybrid CD, interactive
music CD, mixed-mode CD, pre-gap CD, or track-zero CD.
Hard Drives
Originally known as Winchester drives, these magnetic storage devices
have one or more non-removable solid platters--as opposed to the floppydisk drives. Hard drives come in various types, different capacities and
configurations--and are connected to the bus through a controller or
interface card. There are removable hard drives, which allow removal of
the component that contains the platters--a workable option for users with
security concerns.
HDCD
High-definition Compatible Digital. A proprietary method of enhancing
audio on CDs.
Hz
Hertz. A unit of frequency measurement. The number of cycles
(repetitions) per second.
Jewel Box/Case
Karaoke
The plastic clamshell case that holds a CD for shipping or for storage.
Literally, empty orchestra. The social sensation from Japan where people
sing along to a music track. Karaoke was largely responsible for the
success of laserdisc in Japan, thus supporting it elsewhere.
Master
The metal disc used to stamp replicas of optical discs. The tape used to
make additional recordings.
Mastering
Technically, refers to the process of creating a glass master from which
compact discs will be reproduced in quantity. In desktop recordable CD
systems, mastering is done together with premastering by the desktop CD
recorder, and the term is generally used to mean "recording."

Mode
Under the ISO 9660, a CD-ROM sector can be Mode 1 or Mode 2.
Mode 1 allocates2048 bytes for user data, plus a third layer of error
detection and error correction codes. This is the Mode that provides the
highest integrity for computer data.
Mode 2 allocates 2336 bytes for user data, and no third layer of error
detection and error correction. This mode is considered appropriate for
segments of music, graphics and video, especially in CD-ROM-XA and
CD-I implementations.
Multimedia
Protective
Coating
76
Information in more than one form, such as text, still images, sound,
animation, and video. Usually implies that the information is presented by
a computer.
Optical discs are given a clear plastic or lacquer coat that protects the
metallic layer. Even with this coating, small scratches, pressure, dirt and
other markings can make the disc unreadable. The coating also prevents
air from reaching and oxidizing the metallized layer--which would render
the disc unreadable
Track-At-Once
With Track-at-Once writing mode, a CD-Recorder will record one track at
a time. In between every two tracks (unless you are only recording a single
track). The CD-Recorder laser will stop while the hard disc prepared for
the contents of the next track. Each time the laser is stopped, it writes RunOut blocks. When starting again, it writes Run-In blocks (a total of 7
blocks).These are ignored by CD-ROM readers and so do not disturb data
transmission, but in some audio players you might hear a click between
tracks. This is why disc-at-Once recording is preferable for audio discs.
Wave
A Wave file (.WAV) is a type of sound file which stores digitized analog
signals.
Yellow Book
The book which sets out the standard developed by Philips and Sony for
the physical format of compact discs to be used for information storage
(CD-ROM).
