How To copy CDs with GEAR

With GEAR, it's easy to back-up or copy your favorite audio CDs or CD-ROM discs! Protect your valuable investment, or create a convenient copy for your car, or second player. GEAR PRO versions support burning to multiple burners at the same time, for quick batch duplication. With GEAR, copying your CDs is as simple as 1, 2, 3!


    1. Get ready...
    If you have a CD or DVD burner and a second CD or DVD drive, place a blank CD-R in your burner, and your original CD in your second drive. If your PC only has a single burner, place your original CD in the burner.
    2. Get set...
    Press the disc copier button File:DiscCopier.jpg on the GEAR toolbar. This brings up the disc copy window.

    If you want to copy from one drive to another, select "On-the-fly". If you want to copy from one drive to multiple drives (GEAR PRO versions only), select "To one or multiple devices". If you want to make multiple copies of your original, select "Multiple copies". For multiple copies, select the number of copies.
    Select your source drive in the top, and the destination drive (or drives, for multiple devices). You can adjust any devices settings, such as "verify after write", or recording speed by clicking the appropriate "Settings" button.
    If you have only one drive, or you want to use the same drive to read original and write the copy, GEAR will temporarily store the content on the drive shown at the bottom of the window.
    3. Go!
    Press the "OK" button. Your CD will be copied quickly and accurately. While it is being copied, you will see a progress indication next to the appropriate device in the device window.
