Our church recently decided to discontinue recording sermons on cassette tapes and we have purchased a digital recorder that will be connected to our Nady mixer via its ‘line in’ option.
I will be making CDs of the sermons for those requesting them from the MP3 files which the digital recorder makes.
My question is, 'After I burn the initial CD is it quicker to copy the required duplicates from this ‘Master CD’ or is it quicker to just burn each CD individually.
My desktop is an old e-machine with a 40 X CD writer. My notebook is a fairly new HP that has a DVD writer.
I just did a test on the time both computers took to create a 23 track music CD that we offer free on our web site.
The e-machine took 8 minutes 15 seconds from ‘start burn’ (using windows media player) to ejected CD.
The HP took about 1 minute total to copy the files and close the CD.
I have an LG GSA-E60l Super Multi DVD Rewriter (48X CD write) that I planned to use for the copying but I am wondering now if it would not be faster to just burn them individually from the HP instead of trying to copy them from the ‘Master CD’.
There will be about 100 CDs per month.
If it is indeed quicker to copy using the LG is there any fast FREE software that would make this process easy. The LG came with software but I have never really tried to copy from one CD drive to another with it and I am not familiar with its capabilities.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
