Athena D3, D7 & D11 CD/DVD Controller - Introduction

  The CD/DVD duplicator functions both as stand-alone CD and DVD Disc Duplicator
  Controller, and supports up to 11 CD/DVD discs. There is up to 12 IDE ports on the
  controller each of which is independent from one another. This gives the controller the
  ability to control several CD/DVD devices at the same time. The controller’s flexibility
  can work with different other brand or speed. Also, it can support up to 56x CD writing
  and 16X DVD writing speeds.

  This easy-to-use operating control panel consists of an LCD screen and 4 control
  buttons. All operating information, such as the function list, instructions, operating
  status, or error message(s), is displayed in real time on the screen.

  The built-in Hard Drive allows users to load several CD/DVD Master Source Discs onto
  the HDD as source disc images. This reduces the risk of damaging the Source Disc that
  result from heavy duplicating jobs. A forceful HDD management system dynamically
  assigns HDD partitions to each CD/DVD disc image loaded onto the HDD accordingly.
  This ideal HDD manager will ensure a flexible and efficient HDD management process.

                      1. COPY DISC

                          The following operation shows how to copy a Master Reading Source to a blank
                          CD/DVD disc. If you would like to make Disc-to-Disc copies simply ensure that the
                          Master Reading Source is set as the READER

                      a. Turn on the duplicator before you start copying and ensure that the correct reading
                         source and blank disks have been set.
                      b. The system will automatically display how many blank discs were detected.
                      c. When the system is ready to copy, press ENT to execute CD/DVD copies.
                      d. When the system starts the copying process, it will start loading the disc. It will then
                         analyze the discs, and then start copying. During the copying process, the LCD
                         screen will display the Master Source Disc’s data size and copying progress.
                      e. When the copying is finished, the Writer Trays will automatically eject.

                        14. About HDD Manager
                        Our duplicator uses rational and dynamic HDD management technology. The
                        traditional method of formatting an HDD requires you to choose the number of
                        partitions designated for DVDs and CDs before formatting your hard drive.        The
                        problem is that you might not be able to predict how many DVDs or CDs you will load
                        onto your hard drive. Many incomplete partitions can be created, mainly with new
                        DVD disks constantly coming out, such as the double- layer DVD. You need an
                        intelligent and more dynamic way to manage your HDD and our HDD manager can
                        do that for you!

                        Our Dynamic HDD Manager consists of the following special features: I. Auto Detect
                        Disc Capacity and Dynamically Assign Partitions

                        1. When you first format the built-in HDD, our duplicator will automatically divide the
                        HDD into 1GB partitions. A DVD or CD partition does not have to be selected in the
                        beginning.

                        2. You can check HDD information in function 12.6 HDD Info. The Hard Drive’s capacity
                        is presented in terms of how many DVD or CD discs you can load. For example, if your
                        built-in HDD is 40GB, then the system will show the HDD available capacity:
     8 DVD
                          5GB = 8

                          40GB/ 1GB = 40
     40CD               • Note: DVD is calculated by 5GB, and CD is calculated by 1GB.

                        3. Every time a source disc is loaded, the duplicator will auto detect the disc capacity
                        and assign correct partitions for it. For example, if you load a 4GB double-layer DVD
                        disc into HDD as a disc image, the system will automatically detect and assign 4
                        partitions for it.


32
                     4. Dynamic calculated and display HDD capacity. The duplicator will present built-in
                     HDD capacity information dynamically depending on your loaded source disc’s
                     capacity.. Before loading a 4GB DVD disc as source disc image, the HDD information
                     shows the HDD capacity that is available for loading 5 DVD or 26 CDs. However, after
                     loading a 4GB DVD, the system will re-calculate the total available partitions and
                     display how many DVD or CD discs you can load as disc image the next time.
Used: 2 DVD 3CD         Before load 4GB DVD HDD info:
Free: 5 DVD 26 CD
                     Note: DVD indicates 5GB partition and CD indicate 1GB partition

Used: 3 DVD 3CD        After load 4GB DVD HDD info:
Free: 4 DVD 22 CD
                     Smart Image File Management:

                     1. When Discs are loaded into HDD as stored disc images, the system will assign a file
                     name to the image file beginning from A001~.

                     • Note: Each time a new disc image is loaded, the system will automatically search
                     and assign the lowest number as the file name. For example, if there are no deleted
                     files, the file name will be assigned in sequence beginning from A001. However, if
                     there is a deleted file, such as A003, then the file name will be held. The next time
                     there is a new disc image stored, the lowest number of A003 will be assigned as this
                     new disc image’s file name.

                     2. You are allowed to delete an image file by executing 12.5 delete image. Once an
                     image file is deleted, the name of the file will be left empty and held for a future
                     loaded image file. The existing file name will not be changed or moved ahead due to
                     the deletion.
                     3. Use 12. 4 Image Info function to check image file information. The image
[Image Info]         information will display the image file name, Disc type and file size.
