Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the error message indicates that the CD/DVD ROM that holds the original disc which is "the source" could not read said disc inserted into it. While it is possible to resolve the issue as ginko has posted with a lens cleaner, I more inclined to think that it is time to replace the reader/source CD/DVD ROM, the unit itself. This is based on the very purpose of the machine, that is a duplicator and therefore the reader/source CD/DVD ROM is mission critical. Its failure is multiplied into 3 when the duplication process stops due to "Source drive not ready" error as well as waste resources in terms of blank discs spoilage and manhours.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

If the laser is goosed on the Reader/ROM it wont detect a disc and return this error and eject the source device.

Im guessing its a 1-1 with no Hard Drive installed? If you go to menu (from memory)8 Select Source, is it set as the DVD-ROM?

You should be able to tell what drive it thinks the source is as it will eject it

If you get "Source drive not ready", check the disk on the source drive, if the source drive is not reading at all, try cleaning the laser disk with a cleaner disk kit.

    What I mean is that the source disk it is not being read, in this case the first thing to try is using a DVD Lens Cleaner like this.


    Check also the software settings, and ensure the source is set to the proper DVD unit, and not an external one.

    I told you two things, first was to verify the source settings on your software. Do this first.

    thanks
