Storing Your Cds

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 312)

There are many different storage alternatives for

your CD collection. The factors for storage include

how many CDs you own and how long you plan to keep


Below, you will find several alternatives for

storing your CDs:

1. CD jewel cases

You have probably owned these before, as they are

the most common. They can hold your CD cover art and

are very easy to line up on a shelf. Keep in mind

that they do break rather easily and they take up

quite a bit of space.

2. Plastic CD sleeves

Plastic sleeves are cheap and thin, so they are

easy to afford and easy on shelf space. Since they

are so thin, they obviously don't offer a lot in

terms of protection. For long term storage, they

generally aren't recommended.

3. Paper sleeves

For short term storage needs, paper is very cheap

and doesn't use much space. Simliar to plastic

sleeves, paper is thin and doesn't offer very

much protection.

4. Paperboard sleeves

Paperboard sleeves are much thicker than paper so

they will protect your discs. They are also

inexpensive, although they can be hard to seal.

5. Tyvek CD sleeves

Tyvek sleeves are cheap and they don't take up

a lot of space. For long term storage, Tyvek is

normally recommended.

6. CD-ROM disc cases

These types of cases can hold a lot of CDs in a

small space and they may even help to keep out

dust. They do however, make reading labels a bit

hard, they keep CDs out of site, and they will

take up a lot of space.

7. CD spindles

Spindles are cheap and they hold several hundred

CDs in a small stack. Sorting through them is

hard if you need one specific disk, which makes

it something that isn't normally recommended.

Copy Like A Professional

Anyone who has burned CDs in the past has had to

have encountered this problem - your CD doesn't

want to play in certain CD players. You've probably

tried switching to a different brand of disks,

switching the writing speed of your CD burning

software, and yet nothing seems to work.

Most professional CDs that are purchased from a

retail outlet such as Circuit City or Best Buy

works in any type of CD player, which probably makes

you wonder what they are doing that your not. All

of us wonder this, especially when out duplicated

CDs don't want to play back like they should.

Much to the contrary, it's because the music

industry burns their CDs differently. Instead

of simply duplicating CDs, the music industry

chooses to replicate CDs. Even though the

terminology may seem synonymous, the process is

actually totally different.

CD replication is used for the mass production of

CDs, which is normally more than 500. Instead

of writing the data to a CD using a laser as

with duplication, CD replication uses a glass

master to stamp (or press) the data onto the

disc. This helps to eliminate almost all of the

issues associated with playability that are

encountered when burning CDs at home. CD

replication is a far superior process of burning


Important to note, is the superior quality of

CDs that are pressed using replication doesn't

come cheap. Even when using independant CD

duplication companies such as Absolute Disc or

Oasis, there is still going to be a very high

cost associated with the replication of disks.

For your next project, try having your CDs

replicated rather than duplicated. This will

ensure your project is very high quality, even

though you'll need to order more than 500 CDs

to recive this process.

How To Copy Cds

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 320)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Copying CDs is something that is very popular now more

than ever. When CD burners and duplication was first

introduced, people caught on although it wasn't nearly

as popular as it is today. These days, millions of

people throughout the world copy audio, data, and

even video to CDs.

To make a copy of a CD, you'll need a master to copy,

a blank disk, a CD-RW drive, and the proper software.

Most newer computers include either a CD-RW or DVD-RW

drive. If your computer is older, you'll need to go

out and buy the drive, which doesn't cost much money

and is very easy to install.

If you have a DVD-RW drive, you'll be able to copy

both CDs and DVDs. The rate of copying will vary,

with 4X being the slowest and up to 48X being the

fastest. If your drive supports 48X, you can duplicate

a CD in a matter of minutes.

Once you have the CD-RW or DVD-RW drive and some

blank CD-R media, all you need is the software to

duplicate. Nero is among the most popular, as well

as Sonic Record Now and Easy CD Creator. There are

many different types out there, from those that cost

money to the freeware software that doesn't cost

anything to use.

Once you have everything you need, simply run the

software and create your disk. You can copy many

types of media, including pictures, video, audio,

and even data from your computer. Depending on what

you want to copy, all need to do is select it from the

software menu and let it rip.

CD duplication is a lot of fun and easy for everyone

to learn as well. You can back up a lot of things,

or just save pictures of your special memories - the

choices are entirely up to you.

Several years ago, CD-R media and CD burners were

never imagined. Computers were just reached the

GHz speed, with Pentium 1 just starting to reach

the horizons. Floppy disks were the ideal way to

store data, even though it took several of them to

store most types of information. Looking at things

today, you can see at a glance just how far technology

has come over the years.

These days, computers are in 2 out of 3 homes

across the world, with almost everyone owning one.

CD burners and CD-RW drives are just as popular,

with everyone realizing just how much money they

can save by burning their own disks and copying

their own media.

There are so many benefits to CD duplication and

CD-R disks that it's mind boggling. If you've

never owned a CD-RW drive or dealt with CD-R media,

you'd be amazed with everything you can do. CD

media helps to simply life as we know it and make

things easier than ever before.

The theory of CD-R duplication is priceless. Writers,

those that are self employed, musicians, small

businesses, hobbyists, and even fortune 500

companies can all benefit from the brilliance

behind CD-R technology. Not only to do they

save you quite a bit of time, but they are

also very affordable while providing you many

different services.

CD-R media is used to store files and important

security documentation. The media disks are

widely used in the computer field to conveniently

backup software and data on disc. Musicians

as well choose to use CD-R duplication as an

affordable marketing and promotion tool to get

their music out to those who want it.

Even the corporate world as well, uses CD-Rs as

a cost effective way of mass producing training

videos and as an aid in converting to the

ideal paperless office. You can also use CD-Rs

as a business card, as they are smaller than

a credit card and store all of your memorable

business card information.

With everything they offer you, CD media is

truly something you can't live without. The

disks are small and easy to store, yet they

will hold an impressive amount of information.

For all of your audio, storage, or backup needs,

rest assured that CD-R media can help you meet

your demands. The disks will last a lifetime,

making them perfect for special memories. If

you have the need for storage or saving data

and pictures, CD media is the way to go to

ensure that your precious files will be there

each and every time you need them.

Differences Between Cd Dvd Media

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 441)

Even though both CD and DVD disks have the same

media size and shape, the things they have in

common ends there. There are many different

things between the two, such as what they hold

and how much they hold.

Data pits and lasers

A disc has microscopic grooves that will move

along in a spiral around the disc. CDs and

DVDs both have these grooves, with laser breams

applied to scan these very grooves.

As you may know, digital information is represented

in ones and zeroes. Inside of these discs, very

tiny reflective bumps known as lands and non

reflective holes known as pits, which can be

found beside the grooves, reflect both the ones

and the zeroes of digital information.

By reducing the wave length of the laser to 625mm

or more infrared light, DVD technology has

managed to write in smaller pits when compared

to the standard technology of CD. This will

allow for a greater amount of data per track

on the DVD. The minimum length allowed for a

pit in a single layer DVD-R is .4 micron, which

is obviously more than the .0834 micron that a

CD offers.

The tracks of a DVD are narrower as well, which

allows for more tracks per disc, which also

translates into more capacity than a CD. The

avaerage single layer DVD holds 4.5 GB of data,

while a CD holds a mere 700 MB.


As stated above, a DVD has smaller pits and the

lasers need to focus on them. This is actually

achieved by using a thinner plastic substrate

than in a CD, which means that the laser needs

to pass through a thinner layer, with less

depth to reach the pits. It's this reduction in

thickness that's responsible for the discs

that were only 0.6mm thickness - which is half

that of a CD.

Data access speed

DVDs will access data at a much faster rate than

a CD can. The average 32X CD-ROM drive reads

data at 4MB a second, while a 1X DVD drive reads

at 1.38MB a second. This is even faster than

an 8X CD drive.

Universal data format

The recording formats of CDs and DVDs are quite

different, as DVDs use UDF, or the Universal

Data Format. This format allows data, video,

audio, or even a combination of all three to

be stored in a single file structure. The

advantage to this is any file can be accessed

by any drive, computer, or even consumer video.

CDs on the other hand aren't compatible with

this format.

Factors In Cd Duplication

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 470)

The process of writing data to a recordable CD can

be a complex process, as it demands a lot from both

hardware and software programs. Much of this

complexity is hidden from the user by the program,

although you should be aware of these factors.


The total amount of data you are writing is much

less important than whether or not it contains large

or several small files. If there are a lot of

small files, the system may have problems with

locating and opening the files quickly enough to

send them smoothly to the CD recording drive.

The computer

Any interruption that may occur is fatal to CD

duplication, so you should ensure that your

CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT don't load any TSR

utilities which may interrupt operations. Screen

savers, alarms and reminders, or incoming faxes

may also kill disc writing. You should also turn

off network sharing so no one will access the files

that you are trying to write, as this could also

kill your disc recording.

Hard Disk Speed

To write an image to the CD, the hard disk from

which you are writing must have a transfer rate

that is fast enough to keep the memory buffer full

in the CD recorder. This normally means an average

hard disk access time of 19 MS or better.


If your hard drive has to search everywhere over

a fragmented hard drive for the data to be written,

it can cause the operation to slow down or even

cause a fatal error. Therefore, always be sure to

fragment your hard disk drive.

Recording speed

Most new CD recorders and even some older ones,

are capable of writing at two (sometimes even four)

times the standard playback. It should be possible

for you to select the speed; as even though fast

recording is a time saver, it can also cause some

bad situations.

When you copy an ISO (image file) from the hard

disk to a CD, the speed is rarely a problem as the

image is already one large file in which the

files and structures are already in order and

divided into CD-ROM sectors.

When you write from a virtual image, things can

get a bit trickier. In order to copy to CD, the

program must consult with the database to find

where each file should go in the image and where

it is actually stored on the hard disk drive.

Then, it must open the file, divide it into CD-ROM

sectors, at the same time sending the data in a

smooth continuous stream to the recorder. Locating

and opening the file is a bit more time consuming,

as writing is more difficult if you have a lot

of small files.

Just a short while ago, the only people who had

access to CD duplication were professional musicians,

record company executives, and the higher end

recording studios. As technology increased and

became more affordable, private CD duplication

companies began to pop up all over the United States

and other major music centers throughout the country.

These days, CD duplication has never been more

accessible or more affordable. Most home computers

and laptops come with a CD-RW burner and software

that is very user friendly, making CD duplication

very convenient.

Even if you are new to computers, you'll find

CD duplication very easy to figure out. You don't

have to be a computer expert to use the CD-RW

burner or the software, as most of it is self

explanitory. All you need to do is give it a run

and see easy things actually are.

Those who are needing a large quantity of CDs

duplicated or simply wish to have a professional

company burn their CDs, there are several out there

that offer great rates, package deals, and quality

recordings. You can get as many as you want, with

quality that matches that of the master copy.

Most CD duplication companies offer packages that

will include inserts, tray cards, and even

packaging should you choose to take your duplicates

to retail sale.

You can also choose to have your graphic work

imprinted on the inserts or have the CD duplication

company design a totally new design for your very

product. If you are worried about the inventory,

barcodes can be imprinted on the CD case or the

sleeve by the same company.

For whatever duplication needs you may have, there

are companies out there that offer duplication or

you can do it yourself. Either way you choose,

you'll get the copies you need in no time at all.

Benefits Of Cd Duplication

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 286)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

The process of CD duplication is the means of making

several copies of CDs of various types without

doing a replication of many. The term is used to

describe the need and use of short run quantity

copying of various types of CDs. Most CD

duplication is done for quantities under 500.

The value and quality of the duplicate is high,

with the sound quality being very good and matching

the quality of the original. There are many benefits

to CD duplication, including:

1. Its less expensive to do CD duplication

than it is to do a full replication, especially when

the demands are much lower.

2. In most cases, during a replication there

will be a minimum amount that is actually more than

needed. By using CD duplication, you can actually

eliminate this extra replication.

3. Believe it or not, it can actually be

much faster to use CD duplication than a full CD

replication run.

There are other things that can cause you to take a

second look as well. With most cases, CD duplication

will cost more per CD than that of a full run

replication. In the long run however, this may still

be much lower. Not all will look like the original

either, as some will have blue or even black

burn marks on them that make them appear to be


CD duplication, never the less, is a widely used

system of replicating CD's in a very effective and

timely manner. The technology is always improving

as well, so you can look for updates in the quality

of CD duplication systems as well - which is great

news for those who enjoy CD duplication.
