My tower is only 1 year old and has only been used moderately. It has started to take a really long time to start the burn process after you push start. When (and IF) it starts burning, only 1 or 2 of the four drives will actually burn the disk. The funny thing is there is no consistency on which one of the drives will burn. I believe the burners themselves a o.k. but I may have some type of problem with the controller. What I don't know have any idea about is where I can take it in the San Antonio area to have someone troubleshoot and fix it. Can you help me ???

Re: dvd/cd 18x duplicator
Well sadly no one actually fixesthe head(controller) what you do is change it, simply buy a new one, could be any model, any beand doesnt matter that all support the same amount of drives any way.. And just replace it your self...
Are upi sure it aint the media you are using, sometimes the blanks cause these unpridictable unrevealing errors.. If you suspect it can be the media then take out your burners, put it in a computer, google the firmware update for the brand and the model and update the firmware and see if that helps..
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I would say reinstall the drivers for the tower & look for updated drivers from the manufacturer web site. Check all cabling since a bad cable could cause a lot of errors to happen slowing things down. If it was just one drive it could be the drive or a drive is causing the problems. You can disconnect the data cable of one drive at a time to see if the others speed up indicating. Have you installed any software just before the drives started acting up. Other than that I would call tech support of the tower manufacturer. I would assume having it 3 month's your warranty should still be good. Hope you have luck in fixing it.
This model is now discontinued. The replacement is DUP-DP-AS3-11B. *NOTE: Item is not compatible with LG GH22LS30 (Directron part number DVR-GH22LS30)

It happens to me also ALL the time with mine. I have a 7 disc duplicator machine I do for weddings and special events. And it's a real pain and costly to have that come up when you need the project done soon. My solution is to change the brand on the master disc. Burn another copy of the master disc on your computer to another brand and then use that brand as the new "master" in the duplicator. (1 sollution)
"Target Overflow" basically means that either sometimes the master disc has too much information on it to burn than the disc you want to copy can hold, or sometimes a CD may be in by mistake instead of DVD. If you have a Dual layer DVD disc you want to make copies of and you only have the basic 4.7GB standard DVD blank disc..it's not enough storage space on the disc to burn so you will see that error also. It should really say "not enough space to burn) lol..but I guess that's asking too much.
Sometimes all is correct with the DVD size and it'll come up for no reason (usually the master disc is still spinning and hasn't stopped but you've already pressed the "Copy" button, it's not "ready" so an error of "target overflow" will come up)
I've had mine for 6 years so I've done alot of testing and trial and error to come to the above conclusions.
I find that these brands work for the best "thorough" burns.
One a CD has been used or even partially recorded... you can not record on it again.... so if you stop recording on the CD-R disc... you have to start with a new fresh CD-R and throw away the other CD-R disc. Many people make this mistake and try to record on the partially recorded CD-R discs or they have one or two mixed in with their blank CD-R's and wonder why their duplicator doesn't work?
Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense
in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.
If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
