Chapter 1 Introduction
The four models AEC-7763LC, AEC-7763LD, ARS-2022, and ARS-2022D are somewhat different in mechanical design, but have the same functions of duplication.
AEC-7763LC and ARS-2022 are simply for copying CD in video, audio or data form
while AEC-7763LD and ARS-2022D for copying CD and DVD. They all have multifunctional LCDs and 4 simple buttons on the panels. With any of them duplication
will be easier and more efficient.

There are 12 functions for you to use. Function 1 is Copy. You can press
▼ to see
other functions.
3.2 About HDD Installation
With a 3.5” hard drive you can use and enjoy the function of Image. In other words,
you have one more choice to duplicate a CD or DVD from an image file stored in the
hard drive.
3.2.1 With a HDD
If you install a 3.5” hard drive to ARS-2022DS, the operation procedures will be as
follows.
l
Once ARS-2022D detects the hard drive, it will ask if you want to format
or not. In CD a partition has 1GB while in DVD 5GB.
l
l
l
Use function 8 Select Source to set the hard drive as the source.
In function 9 Image select a partition to store the data.
If there is no data in a selected partition, place a source DVD into DVDROM and use function 9-01 Load to transmit data from DVD into the selected
partition by pressing ENT. Different data can be stored in different partitions.
l
Switch to function 1 Copy by pressing
▲ . Place a blank DVD disk into
the DVD writer, and press ENT to start copying.
l
When copying comes to an end, the passed DVD will eject automatically.
The default is automatic ejecting, but you can change it.
l
The failed DVD will remain in the writer. The default is keeping a failed
DVD in the writer, but you can change it. To take the failed DVD you need
to press the button on the writer.
l
During operation do not press any button on ARS-2022D, because
interruption will harm the device, and DVD will be damaged.

frim and the environment of power outlet is normal.
6.2 About Error Messages
During Copy, Test, Compare and Verify, etc. if you press ESC to abort, an error
message will appear on LCD. Abortion may cause ARS-2022D to hang up, therefore
you have to power on again.
If reading fails, an error message will appear on LCD. Please get a new source
DVD to try again.
If ARS-2022D hasn’t detected any device after powering on, an error message will
appear on LCD.
6.3 About DVD-ROM/DVD Writer
If a DVD-ROM or DVD writer cannot read, please confirm the format of the source
DVD and check if it is damaged.
Use any DVD writer to read the source DVD. If it works, the DVD-ROM is probably
defective or not compatible with the source DVD.
Use a fine DVD writer as the data reader, and set the “Read Speed” at minimum.
54
AEC-7763LC/LD & ARS-2022/2022D
6.4 About Buttons
If you press any one of the four buttons on the panel, but there is no response, it is
perhaps that the button cannot function well. Please inspect the jumper setting.
6.5 About DVD Writer Not Readable
After copying if the DVD writer is unreadable, please use Compare to examine, or
get another DVD-ROM to test.
6.6 About High Failure Rate
If the failure rate of copying is high, please do the following things to improve.
l
l
l
l
Lower the speed of DVD writer
Inspect if the blank disk’s quality is bad.
Update the firmware.
Inspect the DVD writer’s maximum writing speed. If the speed is over 24X,
copy the data to a hard disk first, and then transmit to DVD.
6.7 About Firmware Update
If you cannot update the firmware, please inspect the BIOS program. Perhaps you
have downloaded a wrong program, or let a zipped file be written into DVD. The
zipped file should be unzipped first.
Failure in firmware update may cause ARS-2022D to fail in booting. Under the
circumstance, please return the control board to ACARD for repair.
