I get perfectly good results (never had a complaint) with Roxio. Nero is fine too. This is for
Windows computers. Macs I think use Toast mostly. Just use a decent CD burner (Plextor will serve
you right). Also note that on Windows machines, if you're directly burning source to copy and not
spooling to the hard drive, if both CD drives are on one IDE bus, you can have problems with data
collisions and the like. Even with burn-proof. Note I said CAN and not WILL.
If you're thinking of many copies, think a CD tower. We have one for our conference transcripts and
other things. It's great. Nary a bad burn, even with dirt-cheapo media. Even consider a 1:1 copier,
which can be had for less than $300 and keep the computer free for more "intelligent" tasks.
Now, if this is archival duplication, there are probably more technical and costly solutions.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] High speed CD duplicating
For those of you who are using PCs to make high speed copies (4x to 16x)
of CDs, what software do you recommend and how much processing power is
satisfactory for 1:1 copies and/or multiple drives? Thanks for your
time and consideration.
