Check device manager for errors with the drive. If you place a data disc in the target drive does it read the contents?

When I put the disc in to be copies and then the blank discs i press the green start button and it display target drive not ready. How do I get it to copy onto the other discs??


One of the "target" CD-writers is not working -- either the "data" cable is not connected, or the "power" cable is not connected, or the drive itself (either the "spinning" motor, or the "laser") has failed.

Presumably, you don't have to fill "all" the trays, in case you only want to make a few copies of the "source" disk.
So, make a few attempts, with the "source" disk in the "source" drive:
1. put a blank disk into the 1st "target" drive,
leaving the other targets "empty", and press the button.
If it works, then the 1st target drive is OK.
2. put blank disks into the 1st and 2nd "target" drives,
leaving the other targets "empty", and press the button.
If it works, then the 1st and the 2nd target drives are OK.
3. put blank disks into the 1st and 2nd and 3rd "target" drives,
leaving the other targets "empty", and press the button.
If it works, then the 1st and the 2nd and 3rd target drives are OK.

... and so on

If you get a "failure", then you now know which of the "target" drives is the "bad" drive. Either replace that bad drive, or change the cabling inside the unit to "bypass" that bad drive, and put a sticky-label on the face-plate of that drive, saying "do not use this tray".

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.

When trying to copy a CD, I get the following error message: Warning - Bad Master Disc!


I assume it means just what it says. The Disc you are trying to copy is faulty?
Clarify what you are trying to copy. If it is copy protected, A duplicator wont copy it. Or the disc was made in a format incompatible with the master drive you are using. Ive had drives read some discs and another drive that cant read the same disc. Some brands of discs work better on certain drives. Try to use top quality reccomended discs such as Verbatim.

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 : )
