CD Duplication: What Is It And How Does It Work?

Aug 17, 2007
CD duplication is affecting our world in many ways and becoming more affordable for the average person. It's worth mentioning however that better technology is actually properly defined as simply a better way of doing something we already do with whatever process we have at hand. Eor example anytime we find a way to get to work 5mins faster than before we have found a way to improve our lives in some respect.

Many times, when people think of copying compact disks, they think of something that is not legal. There are many articles in the newspapers today dealing with issues of copyright infringement. This is true especially with music, dvds, and computer software. However this can be legal in the right circumstances and also many times is a needed service.

Fair use governs copying for the average home consumer. I myself have used simple software and the burner on my computer for general home use. I prefer not to play purchased music in my car's CD player. For some odd reason, the glued or pasted labels jam my player. So, I make a copy of the CD to play in my car. If it were not for these burners, I would never be able to play the music in my car.

Commercially though, many people have need for CD duplication services. New bands may record and choose to self produce. Online, there are many companies that will perform these services with costs as low as $1 per disc. Speakers may record inspirational messages and then duplicate those for resale later. These are valid uses for making copies.

Companies may also look to use a service to copy discs. CDs are one way of backing up and archiving valuable data. Making backups can ensure that there is more than one copy of the data available.

Not only can audio and data CDs be duplicated, but can also be done with DVDs. Even family movies can be copied and shared for that next family reunion. Any form of data that resides on CD can be duplicated with CD duplication services.

CD duplication can be done in several ways depending on your needs. If, like me, you are a low volume user, you may choose to duplicate the occasional CD with commercially available software and your personal computer. Other users may choose to invest in a CD duplicating machine that can make several copies in just a few minutes from a master that is inserted into the machine. High volume users may look into an online CD service. With an online service, you can upload your information, specify the number of CDs you need and pay for the service with a credit card. In a few days, you can have the CDs delivered to your door step.

To wrap up our article about Biotechnology I wish you luck in putting your new knowledge to use in your home/work life. In the last 20 years I have seen so many examples of new ways to improve our lives come and go I can't help feeling excited about what I'm going to see in the next 20 years. Although many people seem to feel a sense of foreboding about new things changing their lives in a negative way I must confess that I don't have this fear at all (at the ripe old age of 40 anyway). I understand that new and changing technology is not only inevitable but in fact is opening up more opportunities for us all than ever before in our history and we should only feel threatened if we choose to cling to the past and somehow expect the rest of the world around us to do the same.
