 Compatibility and Disclaimers For CDR and DVDR Duplication Services

Although CDs Direct Inc will take every precaution to ensure the maximum quality of the final product, the final output quality is not guaranteed or implied. In no instance can the final output of a disc be better than the original source materials. The better the source original, the better the final output on the disc; the lower quality the original, the lower quality will be in the final output on disc.

Recordable media discs may not play on every player and universal compatibility cannot be guaranteed. The discs you receive from CDs Direct Inc are 100% compliant with the specifications set forth by the different agencies charged with defining standards for CD-R and DVD-R recording technologies. WE only produce high-quality, state-of-the-art products. Over 95% of the disc players on the market today will play your recordable media disc. These players are generally produced by the major manufacturers and are 100% recordable disc compliant. Some manufacturers, in a rush to get products to market, build their machines to work on most discs, realizing that some features of playback compatibility may not work. Many of these machines have problems playing certain commercial discs as well as recordable media discs. Compatibility with all playback devices is not and cannot be guaranteed or implied and no refunds will be made due to playback compatibility problems.

 ISRC and CD Text are not supported in our automated duplication process and will not be transferred from your master disc to subsequent copies. If support for ISRC codes or CD Text is required to be copied from your mailed-in master, you must contact us prior to placing the order for special processing and ordering instructions. Additional charges may apply for the specialized handling of the duplication process. Uploaded files do not support ISRC or CD Text.

CDs Direct Inc shall not be liable for indirect, special or consequential damages (or any loss of revenue, profits or data) arising in connection with this Agreement.

CDs Direct Inc shall not be held liable or obligated to any remedial actions monetarily or otherwise for errors in the discs produced which are attributable to defects or errors in the source materials provided by the customer or as a result of errors in the disc content layout details submitted by the customer.

CDs Direct Inc make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to this Agreement or any services or products offered, including, without limitation, warranties of fitness, merchantability, non-infringement, or any implied warranties arising out of a course of performance.
