If your Accutower says Source Drive Not Ready, it means the tower is not recognizing the original disc that you want to make the copy of. Make sure the master disc is good by testing it on a different computer from the one you burned it on. Also, check that you have the source drive set correctly on the tower. Good luck!

Target drive not ready


The burning drives are not recognizing the blank media.Try using all of the duplicator bays by burning to another drive bay. If all other drives burn fine then the one drive may need to be replaced.Try a different blank CD or using a different brand. The most common fault for this message is a bad blank disk.Finally clean the drive bays by using compressed air to blow any dust out of the system.

Target drive not ready


This message means that the burning drives are not recognizing the blank media. There are a few things to try and remedy this though the unit may need repaired.
First, try using all of the duplicator bays by burning to another drive bay. If all other drives burn fine then the one drive may need to be replaced.
2nd, try a different blank CD or using a different brand. The most common fault for this message is a bad blank disk.
3rd, It is OK per Microboards to open the unit and check for a loose drive cable. A loose cable can cause this error too.
Finally, try cleaning the drive bays by using compressed air to blow any dust out of the system.
If the error still continues then call Microboards tech support at 952 556 1639 to set up a repair.

What do you when it says target disck is not ready on a duplicator


Your disk *WITH* the data is the "source" disk.

Your "blank" disk is the "target" media.

Try a different "blank" disk.
If not any better, then take the unit to a computer technician, to trouble-shoot the hardware that is used to write onto the "target" media.

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.

Targer drive not ready.


"Target overflow" just means that the disc being used to make the copy doesn't match in size. "4.7GB" to the master disc. Sometimes this occurs when you make a mistake thinking the disc in the copy slot is a DVD blank but it may be a CD-R blank(by accident) or sometimes the Master disc is a BD-R and trying to copy to a regular DVD-R (won't fit)

"Source drive not ready" is when the Master disc keeps spinning in the attempt to read. The "culprit" alot of times is the brand, or scratched, dirty, corrupted discs.
Make a copy of the master again (if possible and on your PC with a different brand of disc) then use the new Master to make the multi-discs you want.

"Target drive not ready"
is when a disc with information already on it, is in the copier (can't copy over it) sometimes we make mistakes and put the Master in the copier and vice versa : )
or no disc in it at all, and or some sort of incompatible blank media.

I have a 7 disc duplicator by Pioneer and I found that in the last few years since I've had it (since 2005)
I ran into the above situations alot.
I use it as a standalone (not hooked up to any PC etc)

It still works great but I find that was having a brand name issue with the discs; certain discs that it used to read in the Master/Source drive like Taiyo Yuden, Memorex, Ridata, SKMAX, and Phillips, suddenly don't want to read properly when inserted. The discs keeps spinning and then when you press "copy" it says "Target overflow" or "Source drive not ready" I found that solution I mentioned above with the changing of the disc brand helps fix the situation. I didn't want to hurt my brain trying to figure out what it could be as I use my duplicator for business and time is money.

Through trial and error I end up just making duplicates from my PC on different brands (cheaper unknown brands work fine) and then using the "new master" made from these is the only way I can duplicate..weird!

P.S sometimes the lens may need an old fashioned cleaning with a lens cleaner or Dust blower.

Once in a while one or two of the doors get stuck even when all 7 discs are completed...just take a q-tip with vaseline and put it on the track wheel for some lubrication and the door will open up easier.
Just some tips from someone who's had their player a long time

Hope this helps anyone in need out : )
