Target disc ( this is what you've selected to burn TO) is not empty(is not a blank disc). You should try a different blank disk, or else you have your source and destination backwards.

Acard duplicator - 'Source drive not ready'


> source drive not ready

When you push the button to open/close the drawer, does it work,
i.e., is there electrical power reaching the drive?

Did you put a disk into the "source" drive?
Is the same disk recognized when you put that disk into any other computer?
If so, then the "source" drive is damaged, and needs to be repaired/replaced.

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".

It can't read or burn any data on any empty disks (CD-Rom/DVD)! but it can read any other written disks like: programs , Movies , audio disks , data disks just when I put a blank or Empty disk it seems...


Some CD burners are either "+" or "-" or both "+ -".

That said you will have to check what type of burner you have. Example, you cannot stick a "+" blank cd into a "-" burner, and visa versa.

However, if your cd burner can read and burn both types, you should be okay.

My dvd writer showing a rewriteable dvd as an empty dvd,but it's not empty..


Its the problem with your dvd disk but not the Drive.
Make sure the disk doesnt have many strikes or dirt.
Normally Re-Writables dont work if they have heavy strikes.

DVD player issues


Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.

If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.
