I have thousands of computer CDs and DVDs with some data. I want to backup them in an automated way (i.e. not change disc by disc by hand).

I found this so far:

Are these the only options? What other options are there? Maybe just a regular DVD drive + a robot arm? ("autoloader" seems to be a good search term, better than "disc changer" what I used initially.)

(Not sure if this is the right StackExchange site to ask. Please, before voting to close, please at least give me an advice where to ask instead. On SuperUser it was suggested to ask here.)

  • What kind of data is on the disks?

  • @JMY1000 Anything, really. Those are backups from old PCs, programming projects, music, pictures, etc. But this should not matter really.
