Using Vinpower optical disc drives (ODD) and optical disc media will prevent the dreaded “Donut” rings on your duplicated media.

No donut rings

You may have a different term for it, but when you copy a disc and you see intermittent light and dark rings on the burning side of the discs, (“Donut Rings”), that is a clear indication that you are having compatibility issues between your drive and your media. High quality duplication should leave the recordable side of a disc smooth and seamless for the most part. So when you can clearly see light and dark rings, what we refer to as Donut Rings, then that means the drive’s laser would burn harder/more intense and lighter/less intense due to constant stopping and starting, due to problems between the writers and the media. You could lower the burn speed to try and compensate for these issues, but that may not fully resolve the Donut Rings and will greatly increase your duplication time.

The Donut Ring is often attributable to the low compatibility between the media and the burner. Since the media and drive manufacturers do not work together to fine tune each item to prevent these issues, there’s not much you can do when you encounter these problems. That’s where Vinpower Digital can help. As the only duplication hardware supplier that provides our own proprietary Optical Disc Drives (ODD) and Optical Disc media (CD, DVD, & Blu-ray), we fine tune both the media and our drives to have the best compatibility to prevent the dreaded Donut Rings and provide the best quality burns.

So, if you want to prevent Donut Rings and not waste time burning at a snail’s pace, you should use Vinpower’s drives and media together to ensure the best duplication results!

Vinpower’s H2+ testing on our USB flash drives guarantees them to be free of potential malware and viruses!

USB no malware

Cyber security is one of the biggest concerns for all forms of business (big and small), education, government, etc. We constantly hear about new threats of malware and computer viruses to be on the lookout from. Typically, these breeches come from an unsuspecting person opening a contaminated email that releases the malware or virus onto the networks and wreaks havoc by either disrupting access or stealing content.

Another method of contamination is through USB flash drives. There are times when a USB flash drive could become infected when infected files are transferred onto or from the drive. Or, the USB drive could have a hidden malware loaded onto the drive during production, waiting to spring on unsuspecting users who didn’t think a brand new USB flash drive could contain vicious malware before even being used.

That’s why Vinpower offers two solutions to protect against contracting these disruptive and potentially costly intrusions:

1. When purchasing blank USB flash drives through Vinpower, our specialized H2+ testing eliminates any possibility of hidden malware or viruses, ensuring the drive is 100% clean when you first receive it. At least that way you know the blank USB drive you receive is safe from the start.

2. Using Vinpower supplied USB flash media along with Vinpower’s standalone USB duplicators, the user can add write protection to a drive after the content is stored on it. The write protection not only prevents the content from being altered or deleted from the flash drive, but it also prevents anyone from adding any potential malware or viruses accidentally or on purpose.

So if you want to make sure that you are receiving USB flash drives that are contamination FREE, visit our website,, or speak with a Vinpower representative today.

Cronus surveillance
