If you’re seriously trying to make a living as a DVD or CD pirate, you need the right equipment. Typically, automatic duplicating machines have been too expensive for those working out of their parent’s basement, but the Forte from Disc Makers is a fully automated CD & DVD Duplicator that comes in at just under $500. It can duplicate up to 25 discs at the push of a button, with a speed of 7 DVDs or 14 CDs an hour. The small robotic arm will load and empty the tray as discs are completed, which means you don’t need to hire someone to sit there and feed it media all day.
The Forte also features a 160GB hard drive which can store up to 31 full-size DVD ISOs. The included LCD display and control panel means a computer isn’t necessary, but I assume you’ll still want one around when it comes to ‘acquiring’ or ‘making’ the ISOs being burned. You can buy the Forte Duplicator directly from the Disc Makers website for $499.
