    Anyone know of a way I can utilize my 2 DVD burners to burn 2 Discs at the same time? I need to make 220 copies and don't want to tie up both computers for so long. I know I can take it to a duplication house but it saves we a ton of coin if I do it myself. Anyone know of a way?
    Thanks in advance.

    Nero has the option for using multiple burners.

    I've got Nero, it supports multiple drives, but I can't burn to them both at the same time. Unless I'm missing something/ some setting??
    Please fill em in.

    Thanks

    you're not missing anything! Nero supports multiple drives , but you don't have the capability to write to multiple drives at the same time. I have been trying to find out how to do the same thing. No luck yet!

    I figured it out, and I don't have identical burners with the same firmware. You need to enter an older serial number for Nero and then open Nero Burning ROM, go to the burn tab and voila a little box that you can check for multiple burners. Check the box and then highlight (CTRL click your burners). Works like a hot dam now. BTW I have one burner internal (IDE) and one in a firewire inclosure hooked up via firewire.

    With alcohol120% & with nero, It will burn the same movie onto 3 blank dvds, at the same time, with my 3 108s. BTW, that is with nero burning ROM of course!

    sfxgeek, are you trying to copy 2 DIFFERENT movies at the same time? If so, forget it.

    Yes,
    Open up Alcohol 120 and set your dvd(s) up to copy or you can open it up, set it up to copy then open another session of Alcohol 120 and copy something entirely different to the other drive.

    Ooops,

    After reading my last post, it was kind of confusing.
    Ok.. Open a session of Alcohol 120 and, for example, Copy DVD A to Burner B. Then, while that is working, open another session of Alcohol 120 and AT THE SAME TIME, burn say, an .iso file to Disc E from Drive C. (if you have (2) burners, that is). I do it all the time...
