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.

The process of CD duplication has arrived in a very

big way. Teenagers these days are using their CD

burners to rip MP3s from their favorite artists and

bands. Companies choose to use CD duplication to

make backups of their software and important


Federal agencies on the other hand, are scrambling

to define and interpret intellectual piracy and

copyright laws as they relate to CD duplication and

the industry of music as a whole. The movie industry

is also seeking how they can profit from using CD

duplication. With so much attention being focused

on CD duplication, now is the ideal time to turn

your home CD duplication hardware into a very

profitable side business.

Believe it or not, you may already have everything

you need to get your CD duplication process going

in the right direction. All you need to get your

business started is a computer, CD burner, CD

duplication software, and a few blank CD-R disks.

Contrary to what you may think, its that easy to

get going.

If you don't have a computer or a CD burner, you

really shouldn't worry, as purchasing a CD duplication

device is actually very affordable. The cost of

stand alone CD duplication software has reduced

quite a bit over the years.

Almost all home computers come with internal CD

duplication hardware (CD burners) and some sort

of duplication software as well. CD duplication

media, such as blank CD-R and CD-RW are very

low in price and can be purchased at almost all

retail stores.

The market for your CD duplication service or

company is going to local bands and musicians as

well as small businesses. Local up and coming

bands are often too busy perfecting their sound

to deal with the tedious and time consuming task

of duplicating CDs for their gigs. They also lack

the money to order CDs from the big time CD

duplication companies as well.

The smaller businesses are pretty much the same, as

they are almost always unable to financially

justify having a technical or computer staff to

handle the backup and data storage aspects of their

company. Many times, they will end up forgoing

needed data backups simply because they forget all

about it.

You can however, solve these common gaps, provide

needed service, and earn some nice side money by

starting your own duplication service that caters

to these types of clients. By offering a reasonable

price, fast rate of delivery, and a quality product,

you'll get many repeat customers and a side

business that will keep busy for as long as you

want it.

Cd Duplication Information

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 323)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

It's important to realize from the start that the

duplication and replication process is the same,

regardless of content, as well as the differences

between the CD duplication and replication process.

The duplication of CDs refers to burned CDs, such

as the CD burner with a personal computer. The

burned audio CDs have playability issues in some CD

players, normally car stereos, portable CD players,

and even older types of CD players.

The duplication of CDs has much faster turn times,

simply because a stamp doesn't need to be made.

The process of duplication can start as soon as the

master is received, where the replication process

doesn't start for 5 - 7 days, during which time a

glass master and stamper must be made.

When done locally with a personal computer, you

can duplicate an audio or data CD in just a couple

of minutes. To duplicate a CD, you must have a

computer with a CD-RW drive. This drive copies

the CD disks, and without one - you simply cannot

copy disks.

If you have a DVD-RW drive, you can copy both DVD

and CD disks. These drives are normally the way

to go, as they can copy virtually anything you

stick in the drive. Once you have your drive,

you'll also need software to copy the disks, which

there are many out there for you to choose from.

With a CD-RW drive, you can copy audio CDs, data

CDs, even make SVCD copies. The disks used for

CD will hold up to 700 MB (MegaBytes) of data, or

up to a little over an hour of music.

With everything CD duplication has to offer you,

its no wonder why it's so popular. If you've

never tried duplication before, you should rush

and get you a CD-RW drive for your computer right

now - as the many uses will simply amaze you.

Disc Quality

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 291)

The high demand and dramatic increase in CD media,

plus the competitive pressures to squeeze out

every possible cost and improve the profit margins

have given rise to many manufacturers of CD related

media. To help reduce the costs of increasing

capacity, many of these firms have relocated their

old manufacturing lines and hired staff that learn

on the job.

The biggest problems with CDs occurs when discs are

produced using older equipment then end up failing

when you try to use them. Luckily, most of these

types will fail when you first try to record on

them. There is however, a likelihood that the disc

will complete a burn and the media won't play at


The agony of taking your photo or video treasures

and putting them on CD or DVD and then deleting them

from your camera or computer only to realize that

the copy is corrupted is far too much to risk. The

brand name company's such as Verbatim choose to

guard their reputation for quality and durability

by using only advanced recording dye and other

types of technology to produce high speed discs.

The stability of the recording dye is very critical

as heat, humidity, oxygen, and even UV light can

degrade the dye. Verbatim research has also proven

there is a strong correlation between the production

and bonding processes of disc quality.

For data and personal pictures that are important,

you should always buy quality CD media. Then,

before you go ahead and delete the source file,

trying playing the disc back to ensure that it

copied correctly. This way, you won't have to

worry about losing your precious files and photos

when you remove the source from your computer.

Cd Terminology

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 315)

Below, you'll find the most common terminology that

relates to CD duplication. Even if you are new to

duplication, the terms below may help you learn more.


Block Error Rate. This is the raw digital error rate

before any type of error correction.


This the Compact Disc, a digital medium that's formed

of a 12cm polycarbonate substrate, a reflective

metalized layer, and a protective lacquer coating.


Compact Disc-Recordable. The term CD-R is used to

describe the technology of recordable CD along with

the equipment, software, and media that are used to

make the recordable disks.

Data layer

With CD-R media, this is the organic dye that is

sandwiched between the polycarbonate substrate and

the metalized reflective layer of the media. CD-R

disks don't have any data on them at all until the

are recorded.

Injection Molding

This is a manufacturing method where the molten

material is forced into a mold, normally under

high pressure, then cooled so that the material

will take on the shape of a mirror image in the


Media or blanks

CD-R media are the disks that are used to record

digital information using a special recorder and

premastering software with a computer. These discs

are made of a polycarbonate substrate, a layer of

organic dye, a metalized reflective layer, and a

coating of lacquer for protection.

Organic dye

The data layer of CD-R media is made from a dye

that is melted during the process of recording.

Where the dye is melted, becomes opaque or

refractive, scattering the reading laser so that

it isn't reflected back into the reading sensors.

Reflective layer

This is the metal later that sits on top of the

dye that reflects the laser beam back to the

reading assembly. This is normally 24k gold in

CD-R disks, although it can be silver as well.

Musicians And Cd Duplication

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 306)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

These days, technology is always available for any

inspiring musician to record, create, and even

duplicate CDs. The duplication of CDs will involve

CD-R media. CD-R media prices have dropped a lot

over the last several years, making them affordable

for anyone who wants to use them.

If your band is ready to start selling CDs, your

best option may be to have your CDs replicated.

Replicated CDs are the same CDs that you'll find

in music stores by major label artists. They all

have excellent artwork printed on the CD inserts,

nice tray card inserts, screened art on the CD,

and they are even shrink wrapped.

The retail CDs that you buy aren't duplicated, they

are replicated. This means that an exact replica

of your master CD has been stamped out on all of

the other CDs. If you are serious about selling

your music for profit, replication is the way to


The fact is, most stores simply won't sell duplicated

CDs. Duplicated CDs can be against the law,

which is the main reason retail stores simply

won't carry them. Replicated CDs let the stores

know that the CD is legit, and they will almost

always carry those CDs.

For musicians and inspiring bands, CD duplication

can tend to be a bit more expensive than that

of replication. To duplicate CDs, you need a

computer with a CD burner, your CD-R media, cases,

and a lot of man hours.

With CD replication, you can get many more copies,

professional artwork, a barcode for inventory, and

cases included. Replication is obviously to

expensive for those looking to simply back up

pictures and data on a personal computer, although

the prices are just right for musicians looking

to make profit off of their CDs.

Differences Between Cd Dvd Media

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 441)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

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.
