Greetings.

I have a Zio Tek (rebranded Dacal) media carousel.

This unit has USB connectivity, 100 disc capacity, and can read/burn cd/dvds. The problem is the software that ships with it is horrible, doesn't allow batch processing of discs.

Any of you guys have any experience with getting one of these working for bulk backup?

This carousel is similar to the Sony VGP-XL1B2, but is new to market, so I hope that it comes to be as widely supported as the venerable VGP.

Seems like there are a few starting points here:
