Tips for Handling Optical Discs

Never touch the printable or data surface of the disc, as it may decrease quality and disc lifespan. Refer to the arrows on the illustration to the right, Always handle discs from the outer edge or the center hole.

What You Need to Start a Disc Publishing Session

The Xymba XB43/53 is a PC-connected publisher, which requires a

USB connection to a host computer. You will need a computer with the minimum system requirements and compatible software to start a disc publishing session.

Important Tips for Loading Discs to Xymba

When the disc loader is empty, do not attempt to load many discs at once.

First, carefully load only one disc into the disc loader and assure it is firmly resting on the three wheels seen in the illustration to the right. You may then gradually load additional discs on top of the first disc, until the loader is full.

Xymba processes discs in a First In, First Out (FIFO) sequence. During a duplication session, if a disc refill is required, before the loader becomes empty, gently load additional discs.

Finish Disc Bin is Full or Out of Position

When the Finish Disc Bin or the Output Ram is out of position, the LED indicator will show an error. At the same time, Xymba will signal the software to pause the disc session immediately after the active disc has completed writing. Depending on how the software is programmed, it may also alert the user of an error.

Once the Finish Disc Bin is full, Xymba will immediately pause the duplication session including any disc in the process of unloading.

The LED indicator status will show an error. To resume the session, clear the Finish Disc Bin, return it to position and return to the software to continue operation.

LightScribe Labeling Operation

If you have purchased the LightScribe-enabled version of Xymba, you may automatically label a stack of LightScribe discs. Follow the steps below to start a LightScribe labeling session:

1) Place a stack of LightScribe discs label side down in the disc loader. Make sure that the LightScribe label side is facing downward.

2) Run the LightScribe-enabled application software and follow the instructions to LightScribe label the discs.

Turning Xymba On

Make sure that Xymba’s device driver has been successfully installed as previously explained.

Follow the steps below to get your Xymba ready:

1) Connect the power cord to Xymba and a wall outlet.

2) Turn Xymba’s power switch to the On position.

3) Connect the USB cable to both Xymba and your PC.

Xymba will enter the initialization process and will remove any discs inside the optical recorder. Be patient until the initialization process has completed.

When initialization is complete, you will see the “ready” indicator light up signaling that Xymba is ready for a disc operation

Turning Xymba Off

To turn Xymba off, turn the power switch to the Off position. In case there is a session underway, abort or wait until it has completed.

Although it is fine to leave the power cord plugged in, it is recommended that you unplug the cord for increased safety when

Xymba is not used for extended periods of time.

Xymba Maintenance

Periodically cleaning the device will ensure proper performance.

Follow the steps below to maintain Xymba:

1) Turn the power switch to the Off position.

2) Remove the master and blank discs.

3) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

4) Unplug the USB cord from the host computer.

5) Clean the Xymba unit using a lint-free cloth moistened with warm water.

6) Dry the unit immediately with a dry lint-free cloth.

Choosing Reliable Blank Discs

The quality of a recordable disc depends on its chemical and coating technology. There are a variety of discs with various degrees of disc quality available on the market. If you encounter a high failure rate, please try a different type, speed, or brand of disc.

There are many different brands, speeds and CD/DVD recordable media formats on the market. We do our best to test certain media types. It is impossible for us to guarantee that all discs will be compatible.

Please choose a blank disc that is most suitable for your application.

You may contact your local dealer for advice on the best suitable blank disc for your system. In addition, we suggest users to test blank discs by using disc simulation before actually writing to discs.

Disc Separation

Certain blank discs may tend to stick to each other or may be difficult to separate. Avoid these types of discs. Xymba is equipped with a patent pending disc separator, which handles discs that adhere to each other better than traditional autoloaders. However, it is strongly recommended that you separate or loosen blank discs from each other before use.

Important:

As with blank discs, the quality and the data format of the master disc play a critical role in the duplication process

20 © 2008, Acronova Technology, Inc.

Version V1.2 Operation Manual, Xymba XB43/53

Writing Speed

The recorder will automatically adjust the writing speed according to the disc quality. The system will monitor and automatically adjust the writing speed as the optical laser moves from the inner ring to the outer ring, up to the selected speed. The recorder’s maximum speed may never be reached if a lower grade disc is used.

At the maximum speed, for a single recorder, duplicating a 4.7 GB

DVD should not take more than 8 minutes. Please check both the quality of the blank and the master disc if the duplication process takes more than 8 minutes for a single disc. Use a reliable master disc for testing purposes. You should also try different specification and brands of blank discs.

You should also check the power supply’s voltage and amperes.

Insufficient power supply may decrease output rate or increase failure rate.

As a general rule, a lower writing speed will improve quality. When creating audio and video discs a lower writing speed is recommended to assure quality.

Use a different brand of blank discs.

Why won’t the power switch work all the time?

Allow a 30 second interval when switching the power on and off.

Why does the disc loader fail to pick up the disc?

Check to see if the disc is the standard size (120mm).

Make sure the discs are not bent or damaged.

Why is the disc unloader dropping two or more discs at a time?

Check to see if the disc is the standard size (120mm).

Make sure the discs are level when inserted.

Separate or loosen the discs from each other before use.

Use the same brand of discs. Do not mix disc types or brands.

Reduce the quantity of discs per load. Some discs may bend from the weight of the discs placed on top of them.

Use a different brand of blank discs.

How can I restart or reset Xymba when it is not working properly?
