Subject: replication vs. duplication of CD's
From: GUEST,David Ingerson
Date: 16 Mar 11 - 11:41 PM

The Portland FolkMusic Society is in the final stages of producing our own CD of members' performances. The issue of replication vs. duplication has come up and I'm not having much success in finding the advantages and disadvantages of each method of producing the final discs. One website says this:

Replicated discs (often referred to as pressed discs) are created in a manufacturing process that starts with raw materials like polycarbonate, and involves physically pressing your data into the surface of the disc. Duplicated discs (often referred to as burned discs) encode your data onto a specially manufactured disc by burning microscopic holes into the dye layer of a recordable CD or DVD. Replicated discs are the standard for major commercial releases; however, duplicated discs have lots of advantages, too.

I've heard that the duplicated or burned discs are more fragile than the replicated or pressed ones, but they seem to be less expensive.

Any informed opinions about the advantages or disadvantages of either method?

Thanks,

David

There is a thread on exactly this.


I don't know how to search. If someone could link David to it, it would be faster than slower, if ya know what I mean--

I guess I lost my cookie. I'll reset it.

Thanks, Guest. I searched for pressed, burned, replicated, and duplicated and found nothing.

I'd love to find a thread already in existence and not bother people again.

You certainly NO bother.

I think this is the one. Title of the thread was "CD-R Questions."

Good one, Martha.

The one I'm thinking of was more recent, but your link will get the ball rolling. Many thanks.

Thanks so much, Martha and Guest.999. That was exactly what I was looking for. Although the opinions are a little more divergent than I was hoping for, there is a lot of good information there.

The thread is two years old. I'm assuming that not a whole lot has changed in those two years. But if some of you have additional information or opinions, I wouldn't mind hearing them.

Thanks again,

Cheers,

David

Duplicated have a higher chance of not working on some machines

Thanks, JHW, for that additional thread.

And thanks to everyone on Mudcat for being a valuable source of information and, yes, all those opinions, too!

Cheers,

Hey guys

Duplication is a second generation, and sometimes can be a unstable media. How many disc do you need and what is your budget I would start there. Try this company they do great work http://nwdigitalinc.com/

Good luck

MM
