This workflow will walk you through how to use the Single DVD duplicator tools to create a duplicate of your DVD. It is best used to make copies of DVDs with copy protection or PAL DVD's from regions other than region 1 that cannot otherwise be copied.
If your DVD does not have copy protection and is a region 1 disc, use the DVD one to many duplicator workflow.
- Please note that this requires an unused DVD-R/RW. If you need to purchase a DVD-R, RTF equipment checkout in HSM 2.102, 7-11, & the University Coop sell them.
Turn on both DVD recorders and the monitor above them.
Place the DVD you want to copy into '5 - DVD player' also labeled as Source.
Place a blank DVD-R or -RW into '6 - DVD Recorder' also labeled Record.
Once the Source DVD has loaded, make sure the monitor is turned on, and select input 5 on the switcher.
Use the white remote control labeled '5 - DVD player' to find the point at which you would like to start your recording.
Select input 6 on the switcher.
Make sure that your signal is coming through from the Source disc.

When you find the scene you want to copy on the Source machine, press the record button on the DVD Recorder. Press play on the Source DVD player.
Please be aware that your media will record in real time only.
