Prepare for CD/DVD Replication

Depending on the nature of your business, you may sporadically or often be in need of CD/DVD replication services. This may be due to a special event, a promotion, or the need to share information with remote clients or workers.

The prototypical copy you provide to your CD duplication service is referred to as the master copy. It is important that the master copy is well prepared before delivery to your CD replication service.

Preparing Your Master Copy before Delivery to Your CD Duplication Service

For the best possible quality, follow these tips on proper preparation of your master CD/DVD.

  • You want to use the best brand of CD/DVDs. Do your homework and use high quality media before sending your master to a CD duplication company.
  • Do not burn a CD on a laptop computer using battery power. The inconsistencies in energy levels may result in a poor final product from your CD/DVD replication service.
  • Be sure to always select the finalize option when making your master. This facilitates the compatibility level in regards to other CD-ROM drives.
  • Avoid re-write discs when preparing your master copy for CD/DVD duplication. This brand of disc will result in many instances where your disc will not be compatible with other drives.
  • Do not burn your CD/DVD from a network source. Copy your source files to a local hard drive if they are originally from a network source.
  • This seems obvious, yet needs to be said. Avoid contact or movement of your drive while you are burning your master. Any jolts could result in skipping during the process and a master not befitting to turn into your DVD replication service.
  • If your application has it, use the burn-proof option. The feature forces the burning process to slow down in the event the computer cannot transfer the information fast enough. Total burn time will be impeded, but the quality of the master you are giving your CD replication service will be superior.
  • It is ideal to have all other applications closed on your computer when burning your master CD/DVD. Diffusing your computers resources may result in errors, slower burn time, or a final product of lesser quality.
