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.

I have a Pioneer CD/DVD Duplicator 8 drives. Recently no matter what disc I put in as the master. It tells me I have a mad Master Disc. Obviously all the media can't be bad. When this messgae pops...


The 3rd drive is the master now. If you want to change back to top drive, go to #8 "select source" and use up/down key change to " drive 1 " and save. for more detail, please read the user manual page 21 and 22.

For VPD system,if the top drive defected, the system should auto assign 2nd drive as source, but your system pick up 3rd drive as source drive, I suggest you check drive 1 and 2 before make copy.

I put a dvd in the dvd rom and blank dvds in the other and hit copy and it goes to preparing and the says that the source is not ready.


The "Source Drive Not Ready" error message indicates a problem with your master disc. There is a function on the duplicator called "Prescan" on the duplicator that can check your master disc to make sure it s a "good" disc suitable for duplication.

PIONEER BURNER BURNING BUT DISC EMPTY SAYS DISC FINISHED BURNING BUT WHEN TRYING TO PLAY SAYS DISC EMPTY AND I CANNOT USE IT AGAIN


What OS and disc brand and type are you using? Try a different brand; some disc manufacturers seem to make more "coasters" than others. If you are not using RW(rewritable) discs, make sure to cancel the autoplay "Format disc" option for blank discs in most Windows OS versions. I chose to turn off autoplay.

I hope this helps.

(Yes I made a few coasters. So far I've found that Verbatim DVD +R DL discs are good. CDs are fine with most brands. However, other reviewers say that the plant where the optical discs were made matters.)

When i push copy on my DVD burner it says,Target Overflow,what do that means becouse it wont let me burn nothing its a[ TEAC 1 1 DVD/CD duplicator]


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.

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 : )

PROBLEMS DUPLICATING WITH MY CONDRE TRACER PRO


You could try using a lens cleaner in the drive. Another is to update the firmware version from the manufacturer's website. The last thing I can think of is to uninstall the drive from device manager, uninstall your burning programs, and then re-install them.
