TC 8000 Duplication Controller
This function is useful for tracking media through a
production process and is only available when using
TrueCopytm recorders. This function will request that
a CD be inserted, and will then scan for RID codes on
recorded media. If no RID is present then "No RID
Found" will be display. If an RID is present it
will be displayed on the LCD. The RID will contain a
drive manufacturer code, and the drive's electronic
serial number. Every drive has unique RID. A CD with
an RID code can be traced to the exact drive that recorded
it. To find the electronic serial number of TrueCopytm
drives select the menu item Utilities|System Information|True
TrueQA Scan is only available when used with TrueCopytm
recorders. TrueQA scan will scan recorded media checking
for uncorrectable C1 and C2 errors. Uncorrectable C1
errors are present on all CD media, and are normal.
However, uncorrectable C2 errors lead to bad data, or
clicks & pops on audio CDs. When scanning a CD,
if there is any count other than zero (0) for C2, consider
this disc to be of unsatisfactory quality.
Note: Some CD Copy protection schemes
rely on 'bad blocks', and so scanning a copy protected
CD will often reveal uncorrectable C2 errors.
These functions are used to display information about
the various components installed in the CD Tower.
Display the installed firmware level, the number of
writers found in the system, and the number of writers
licensed in this system.

revision. While it is possible to use different writer

Display TrueCopy recorder manufacturer, model number,

to track recorded media. This function is only available
with TrueCopy recorders.
