please check the power cord insert properly, press on the power switch at the front. In some larger systems, please double check the back panel has one more on off switch.

Why do I get a read error when trying to copy a disc?
You are most likely running into copy protection. The disc publisher has placed "unreadable" sectors on the disc in an effort to confound disc duplication programs. If you believe the disc is not copyright protected, then it might simply be dirty or scratched. You can try to clean the disc gently using a lint-free cloth, wiping from the center out.

Duplicating speed depends on the writing speed, generally for 16X stsndard DVD Media is 5-7 min, double layer dvd is 14 minutes.

Possible issues are the blank media. First make sure you are using the correct type of disc, use the “Disc Info” feature to verify that the media are blank or not. Scroll through each DVD drive and see if it detects a disc and verify that each disc is blank and of the correct format.
