CD and DVD duplication

Whether CDs or DVDs can be copied depends on licensing issues (do you have the permission of the copyright owner) and technical issues (is the material protected in any way). If the answer to both of these is positive you have a range of options for duplicating disks.

Very small scale

It is simple and often cost-effective to a make a few copies of a disk using your office computer. If you need assistance in how to copy CDs or DVDs please contact the Helpdesk for assistance.

Medium scale

The Helpdesk have a CD / DVD duplicator that can make the copying of disks a bit easier although they can still only be done one at at time. If you need up to around a dozen you can probably do them yourself using this device. Please note you will need to provide your own blank disks.

Large scale
