Question about BMI Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My DVD duplicator is not burning DVD's.

We have a BMI 4x DVD-RW Duplicator. It has 5 slave drives and the master drive. We use it on a weekly basis and last week it worked fine. Today, I tried to insert a DVD for it to copy to the other drives, but it says that there is a problem with the target drives. The DVD that I am burning from is a DVD+RW. I am trying to burn to DVD-R. The power is working, but anything that I try says the target drives are not working. I have tried doing each slave drive individually, but none of them work. What can I do to get them to work?

SOURCE: Targer drive not ready.

I know I get the same error when I try to copy a cd and I accidentely leave a dvd in one of the target drives. So make sure that when you copy a cd that you have cd-r's in the drive and when you copy dvd's that you have dvd'-r's in the drives. Or it could be something else. Just a thought.

SOURCE: acard 1 to 3 duplicator can't seemto get past the traget disc not ready

of course theres a problem but what are you doing with the thing? are you formaating the disk first to render the dvds in the target drives? are you using the right DVD like DVD+ DVD+- or Blueray? need more information to help you. and it the DVD you are copying has been redered on another machine it won't copy it anyway. You have to use the same machine to copy it as thats how they protect copy rights now days.

SOURCE: Trying to burn dvd. It keeps saying Target drive not ready

Hi, assuming the rest of the drives are working there are three probable issues.

1. The cabling for power or data is loose or faulty, check the cabling, remove and reseat it, then try again with new data cable and swap power connectors with one of the other drives. If the results do not vary it's not the cables, If the problem moves with the data cable but is not resolved by replacing the cable it is the logic board at fault.

2. Try cleaning the drive, do not use brush cleaners as they can damage the head, just used a compressed gas can or air compressor on less than 20lbs/in, if this does not work...


3. The second drive may be faulty, check with the manufacturer/manual. Many of these devices require a specific model or one of only a few models for compatibility, replac with an appropriate model.

Hope this helps FixYa,



Chris

The two common problems, copier doesn't like color of discs etc, and slowing the speed that leave you've already tried. After those the most likely thing is that one of them has heads that are out of alignment. You could try copying cd's as they have coarser and the heads don't have to be as accurate. If that works then it is very likely it's the heads out of alignment. If they won't record on the cds at all it still can be the heads out of alignment too, but this test may help determine which drive is out of alignment.

How much does it cost for the 1 to 3 duplicator


Probably a *LOT* more than just using your correct CD-writing software to tell it to burn '3' copies, serially, rather than using a Plextor Dupsonic to burn '3' simultaneous copies.

Probably, a *LOT* more than "outsourcing" your disk-copying needs,
e.g., http://www.wimmedia.com/duplication-replication.php (Western Imperal Magnetics has good rates for many-at-a-time duplication).

The 3rd drive is the master now. If you want to change back to top drive, go to #8 "select source" and use up/down key change to " drive 1 " and save. for more detail, please read the user manual page 21 and 22.

For VPD system,if the top drive defected, the system should auto assign 2nd drive as source, but your system pick up 3rd drive as source drive, I suggest you check drive 1 and 2 before make copy.

Cannot copy dvds or cds with my duplicator


Hey! Usually, DVDs have some protections which prevent DVD users copying DVDs freely. Theser protections include CSS protection, region code protection etc. Therefore, you need to remove DVD protections first if you want to copy DVDs. There are some DVD Copy software which can do this. I have a good luck with this DVD Copy which works fine. You can have a try if you like.
Hope that helps.
