This utility appeared when I finally decided to get rid of 100+ CDs and
put them on a large hard drive. Normally it means that you put CD to
drive tray, wait until it reads disk contents, then select everything
and copy to some local folder. Then you need to wait, several times to
check if process is finished and repeat. For 100+ disks it's not even
annoying, it's just impossible to finish. So I've made a program,
which waits for disk to appear in the drive, copies
everything and ejects the disk to get another one. Advanced
version, which was built next day after the very first version,
supports different manners of copying and allows to select which drives
to monitor. So now you can mass copy all the CDs and DVDs you need
while gaming or doing anything you want.
Usage: select the destination folder (it must exist) and hit "Start monitoring".
Known limitations: only single disk at once (version 1.0); seems to have problems at 64-bit Vista.
By the way, you may want to disable autorun feature while copying.

- Create separate folders for each disk:
creates new folders based on 3-digit number and volume name of the disk, like "001 Photos",
"002 Music", etc. Numbers are sequential, no matter what volume names
are - you won't get several folders which start from "001".
- Copy to
single folder: copies everything to single folder and
deals with duplicate files one of 3 ways:
overwrites everything, in addition, if
you have a file, it can be overwritten by a folder with same name. If
you have an empty folder, it can be overwritten by file - this won't
work with non-empty folders. If you have a folder, which already
exists, new content will be added to that folder.
just skip the file or folder if it exists - folder
contents won't be merged, if you already have a folder, nothing would
be added there.
folders would be renamed by adding three-digit
number as an extension. So you may get set of "Photo", "Photo.001",
"Photo.002", etc. Files get additional extension before it's last
extension. Thus you may get set of
"videofile.avi", "videofile.001.avi", "videofile.002.avi",
etc. If there's no extension, the are renamed the same way as folders.
- Status: shows a current operation.
- Drives to monitor:
A set of disks below contains a list of all CD/DVD drives in system and
allows to select only the drives, which you wish to be monitored. No
flash drives would be monitored.
- All removable drives (+flash):
if this option is set, it will monitor
everything, including flash disks, USB hard drives, etc., so in this
mode it would automatically copy any media inserted to your PC. Only
CDs/DVDs would be ejected.
- Activity log:
- Log errors only:
if this option is set, log would contain only error
messages. Otherwise each copy operation would be added to log as well.
