    Hello, I am new to the stand alone DVD duplicator market and was
    wondering what the downsides, if any, are involved with using one as
    opposed to burning at 1x on my Mac's Pioneer. For example, will a
    dvd-r copied with a duplicator tower still show my layered Photoshop
    menus? Will compatibility on set-top players be affected?

    I've got about 100 copies of a dance recital to make and it's taking a
    really long time...

    Thank you very much,

    You should be able to create an "image" of the dvd which can then be
    burned with no further conversions needed. This will be much faster
    if you need multiple copies of the same thing.

    Duplication should copy everything exactly as is on the master so
    menus etc should be fine.

    I have seen advertising that suggests DVD+R is the more compatible
    media. In my limited experiance DVD-R works fine.

    Thank you. I feel better about dropping $800 on a 3 target duplicator.

    Happy 4th,
