Question about BMI Computers & Internet
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?

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.

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.

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,
