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:
- Auto Ripper hackaday project
- Vinpower RipBox station (expensive)
- Nimbie Disc Autoloader (via davidgo comment) (extremely expensive)
- DIY autoloader hackaday project (original German source, video, video)
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.)
