Is Your Automated CD/DVD Duplicator Ready for Windows 7?

Windows 7 Supported CD-DVD DuplicatorsBy now, most of us have heard about the phenomenal success of Windows 7. The latest and greatest operating system from Microsoft has sold more than 100 million copies since it went on sale 8 months ago, and industry sources are predicting that another 200 million copies will be sold by the end of the year. Before you run out and get a copy for yourself, the question must be asked: is your duplication setup ready for Windows 7?

Although Windows 7 has been extremely popular with early adopters, many homes and businesses have yet to make the switch from Windows Vista and Windows XP. As these users transition to the new OS, they will want to make sure their existing CD/DVD duplicators (or hardware they plan to purchase in the future) will be compatible with Windows 7.

Fortunately, many of the biggest names in the industry have already released software and driver updates for Windows 7. Let’s take a look at which manufacturers of CD/DVD duplicators and printers support Windows 7 as of May 2010:
