After 20 years of continuous effort, CD duplication became effective. Today it is very cost effective as there are better tools available for it and it can be done in the comforts of one’s home. With the use of modern software and hardware technologies, the duplicated products are not shabby either. Earlier CDs were available only in the readable format.
Later, due to the growing demand of the customers, the manufacturers produced CDs that could be easily encoded. With this facility, any computer operator could easily duplicate the CD. What CD duplication means is the first question that arises in our mind. Duplication means creating exact photocopies of the originals. Within a short time many copies of a master disc can be created. These copies are the exact replicas of the master.
For CD duplication, all you need is a reliable computer, a burner, CD writer and data management software. If you are copying music files, you can choose music CD or if you are copying data files, you can choose data CD. With most of the softwares, the speed for burning CD can also be selected. It is advised to choose slower speeds as it produces fewer errors as compared to the faster speeds.
What a CD burner does is another question that arises. It actually operates as a photocopier. It can be an external writable drive or built into the PC. Today, many systems come with built-in CD drives and burners. The CD burner uses a moving laser like a regular CD player. Both read and write laser is present in it. For write laser option, a blank CD is used. The surface of the disc is changed by the laser light and it also alters it.
Copying the data from the owner disc to a blank CD is how CD duplication is done. CD write or CD re-writable can be this blank disc. The content of the data will not be changed by copying the data. You cannot make modifications or delete anything.
You can copy the data after erasing the old one however in CD-RW again and again. The speed at which CD duplication is done matters a lot. This speed may be the speed of the CD burner itself, speed of the copy disc and speed of the connection between your PC and CD burner.
