  Disc Loader with file copying abilities? 
 Date Written

Fellow Forum Members,
I have somewhere around 1,000 DVD / CD discs I want to transfer to my 2 TB hard drives. However, I do not want to sit there doing this work manually.

Does an automated disc loader exist out there that will not only load a disc to the tray automatically, but will also create a folder and assign it a name such as "Disc 120". Then once the folder is created it automatically copies all of the data over from the disc into the "Disc 120" folder on the hard drive. Does such automation exist? Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Wish I would have thought of getting something like this when I did my transfers of over 80 CDs a few years back :/

I did a quick search but found nothing that does exactly what you are looking for.

The only thing that comes to mind quickly is writing a script, possibly a batch file which waits until a new CD is put in the drive and then starts copying as soon as the CD is Ready. You could mix this in with a .net project and make it work.

Also, at least consider:

Outsource the work to China like everyone else! It would only cost you $0.03 per disc. LOL
