Using a USB drive duplicator to make copies of a USB drive

There are times when you have to make multiple copies of the same information on many USB drives. If you are making a few copies like 2-3 then using the ports on your computer will be good enough to make the duplicates, but when it comes to make more duplicated you will want to get a duplicator.

Duplicators will range from around 1:7 (one USB copies to 7 USBs) all the way up to 1:100. These are perfect for corporations that need to give their employees many files and don't have a lot of time to make the duplicated one at a time.

Using a USB drive duplicator what you do is on the tower (or in the accompanying computer software if it is plugged into the computer) set the display to copy, usually there is an enter button that should take you the menu and arrows to help you move through the menu. When you have copy selected plug in the USB you want to duplicate in the port labeled source. And then plug the blank USB drives in to the other ports. Most systems have a green light that lights up when the drive is plugged in properly. When all the green lights are on and all the USB drives you want to duplicate are plugged in.

Hit the enter button and the device will start to work. On the display you will see a few things happening, it will say things like copying... and initializing, and the green lights will flash. When the finalization process is finished the display will tell you that it is safe to remove the USBs. And that's it you are done! It could take you days to do them by hand or just hours to duplicate hundreds of USBs using a duplicator.

Files copied onto kingston dt1/16gb usb get garbled.

Many people don't realize this, but flash memory wearsout the more you delete and write files to it. How quickly it wears out willdepend on the specific flash drive. Like anything, there is a wide range ofquality in currently available flash memory-based drives. You can make a roughcorrelation with the cost/quality of the device (what you pay is what you get),but even that tends to change over time. Depending on usage and quality itcould be talking as short as months or as long as several years. In extremecases of misuse it could lasting as little as a few weeks.
