Compatibility With Microboard Multiwriter Cd Duplicator?



Pondering a purchase of a MultiWriter CD Duplicator by Microboards and use Toast 11 as my software for my MacBook Pro. Does anyone know if this works? I want to be able access each drive individually like the PC (yuk!) software included with the Microboard purports to do. I would prefer using a Mac for the management of the tower. Anyone?

Toast recognizes individual connected drives that are seen by the Mac and reported in system profiler. So it depends on whether the Mac sees the duplicator as one drive or individual drives.


Here is the info from Toast Help regarding burning to multiple drives:



Burning Projects to Multiple Recorders

Toast now includes support for burning most projects to multiple CD, DVD,

or Blu-ray recorders at the same time. The steps here apply to all disc

projects where Multiple Recorder Support is available, including Data,

Audio, Video, and Copy projects.

To burn projects to multiple recorders:

1 Once you have prepared your project and are ready to begin burning,

select the Destination pop-up menu at the bottom of the screen and

choose Select Multiple Recorders.

2 Click the red Burn button.

3 The Multiple Recorder Setup window appears. For each recorder you

would like to use to burn your project:

a Click the checkbox to the left of the drive name so a check mark

is visible.

b Place the appropriate type of disc (CD, DVD, or Blu-ray Disc) into

the drive. You can use the Eject button on this screen to open

each drive tray.

c Confirm that the status for each drive shows a blank disc is


Note: You must use the same type of disc in each drive. You

can not burn to a CD in one drive and a DVD in another drive,

even if the project would fit on both the CD and DVD discs. We

recommend that you use the same brand and model of disc in

each drive.

4 Optional: Select the Write Speed you would like to use for recording

your project to each drive. You can only select speeds that are

common between the selected drives.

5 Click the red Burn button to begin recording your project.




Note: Depending on your system, the number of drives used,

and how they are connected to your computer (internally, USB,

FireWire) you may see different levels of performance. Burning

to several recorders at the same time in some configurations

may result in poor write speeds and a burn time longer than

burning each disc individually.
