CD Duplicator

  Luca M 12:07 20 Jan 2008

Hi all,

I am looking into buying a CD/DVD Duplicator unit, but I would just like to know weather it is possible to this with adding more hardware to a normal desktop PC?

I have a case that can handle all the extra CD Drives, but is it possible?

Thanks in advance.

Duplicators are normally thought of in terms of x3, x7, x10 etc. Adding one to a normal PC setup means extra hardware whatever you choose. Also they can be quite expensive - approx £600 for a x10 for instance, or maybe more.

I am looking at getting a x3, so adding another 2 dvd rw drives to the one that I already have inside the pc.

Would it be possible for this setup to work in the way that a duplicator does, or will the pc only be able to use 1 dvd drive at a time?

Have never tried it myself, but I guess it would depend on what Software you use.

Maybe this will give you more info ... click here

Yes, I have seen that website, it was where I am going to get the duplicator from. It dosent really answer weather I can use the PC. I have done some searching and found nothing, but just thought that it may be possible with a little bit of software or hardware.

Base on the amount of SATA and IDE connection that the motherboard have it possible to install more than 2 DVD drive, a normal IDE computer will only take 2 internal DVD drive

You will also need the software to copy to a bank of DVD drives using the normal Nero software will only copy to 1 DVD drive

Most Duplicators are stand-alone unit that copy from the main DVD drive to a bank of other DVD drives

Ok, so from that comment I understand that it is most likely not possible to use the PC as a multiple cd duplicator.

I will just buy the cd duplicator that I intended to buy.

Thanks to all who contributed.
