Copying dvd to hard drive so i can copy i have a family dvd that i would like to copy how do i do it


It really depends on the DVD content. Commercial DVDs are copy-protected, and unless you have specialized (and usually *******) software, you copy attempts will not work. Home-recorded DVDs can be copied, but again, content is key. You can do something as simply as copy the files to the hard drive and re-burn them to the new DVD, but that will produce a DVD that will work in a PC but might not work in a DVD player is there is video content to be watched. You can copy the disc as a single-file ISO, which provides an exact copy of the disc. To do that you'll need a program that can make and burn ISO files. There are a number a free ones available out there, just be careful what you go for as some are known to be accompanied by adware.

Cannot copy dvds or cds with my duplicator


Hey! Usually, DVDs have some protections which prevent DVD users copying DVDs freely. Theser protections include CSS protection, region code protection etc. Therefore, you need to remove DVD protections first if you want to copy DVDs. There are some DVD Copy software which can do this. I have a good luck with this DVD Copy which works fine. You can have a try if you like.
Hope that helps.

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 : )
