When you plan to complete CD duplication project, it is important to have the proper materials and a great program to make the process simpler. It is also important to use the right type of CD and view or listen to the finished product. There are a variety of reasons to duplicate a CD from wanting to make additional copies of family phots, duplicate family videos or make additional copies of favourite music compilations. The process takes very little time as most music CDs take less than 5 minutes to rip, burn and sample.
Select the Right Program
Always select a ripping, burning or editing program that works with the operating system on your machine. Incompatible programs will not work. It is also important to scan the newly installed program for updates prior to CD duplication procedures to ensure that you are not missing out on any prime features.
Some programs include editing software. This allows you the opportunity to make photos a higher resolution or remove background noise. It also helps create slideshows for duplication to send as gifts or memoirs. The program will synchronise the photos with music. This is the ideal type of program to have on the computer as you can complete a multitude of projects with that single program.
Select the Right Type of CD
Before CD duplication processes begin, view the compatible disc types that work on your computer. Also try to select something, such as CD –R that is compatible on most devices. The disc should also be high-definition so that the quality duplicated listens and views the same on any device.
It is ideal to keep a master duplicate as well. This should be saved for making additional duplicates only. The better quality the master copy is kept in, the higher-quality future duplicates will be.
Close Additional Programs
Anytime that you are working on a CD duplication project that involves music and images, you should shut down all of the background programs that are running. This helps the program work faster and without interruption from refreshing web pages or taking up unnecessary bandwidth. Anything that slows down the thinking process of your machine interferes with the recorded quality of the CD.
Playback the CD
Always view or play back the CD before giving it away. This gives you an opportunity to listen for imperfections, warping, pauses and fuzzy areas. It also gives you an opportunity to view how slideshows and videos play. The playback should be smooth, flowing and without interruption. Videos and photos should be free of lines, pauses in switching and should be absolutely clear to view.
Making CDs of favourite music, videos and photos is a good idea. CDs get broken, flash drives disappear and computers crash. Having a backup is always a good idea. This way you are not losing any favourite memories or music in the event of a tragic loss of equipment. It is a good idea to have a removable memory option available such as a flash drive, to save the content on as well.
