IP-6800 Series CD-R Autoloader
User Manual Addendum
This is additional information
not found in the manual.
To print on CD's while they
are being copied you will need to import a print
image into the system to append to the CD image
you are copying. On Image functions you will have
a new entry for import print images. To do this
you must create the print image on a PC using
the supplied CDID software program or similar
program and then print to a file, (Make sure 'detect
media change' is turn OFF in the Rimage print
driver)(should have a .prn extension,Choose print
to a file in the printer driver options instead
of the normal LPT1 and it will automatically bring
up the name file screen when you print) this file
or files will then be burned to a cd for transferring
onto the loader hard drive. It is best to try
and get a lot of the print images together at
the same time and do them together to save time.
You then go to the 'Image Functions' area of the
loader and use the Import (load) print images
option. The images are imported similar to how
a master is loaded in, except it will bring up
a directory menu and allow you to choose the image
to be imported. To attach or APPEND to a master
cd image file you would choose this option from
the menu and pick the appropriate files. You are
given the option when you go to copy if you want
to print or not. There is also a print only option
from the main menu.
This menu has new items that may not pertain to
Erase CDRW -does not apply if you do not have
Async copying - Yes or No
Turns asyncronous copying on or off, this is if
the drive will immediately start copying or start
when all drives are loaded.
Enable Printer -Yes or No
Tells machine to look for printer or not.
Cyclic Output -Yes or No
This will tell the loader to use the cyclic mode
for input and output of the blank and finished
discs. Cyclic mode will allow you to fill all
spindles except the number one spindle with blank
media. The loader will begin loading from the
#2 spindle and move the copied CDs to #1, #3 to
#2, #4 to #3, #5 to #4. The rejected media will
be dropped in front of the drives on the deck.
The best way to tell if this mode is On is if
the loader gos to the #2 spindle at start up.
The standard 2 input-2 output mode is the recommended
setting for most duplication (Less confusing for
the operator) unless you are doing large quantities.
