Robotic DVD Burner

I built a robot DVD burner from a Primera Composer I purchased on eBay. This burner is used as part of my backup strategy for my Linux (Fedora) file server.

    Hi, Can you please share how to use Primera Composer?

      The Primera Composer is a device that includes a DVD burner and a pick and place robot. Connected to a PC the original device will automatically duplicate CDs or DVDs for you. It picks a blank of a pile, puts it in the burner, burns it, picks it up and puts it into a done pile. I simply discarded the vendor software and figured out the protocol to control the pick and place robot. I then wrote my own software that rather then duplicating a disk, would find all the files that changed and burn them to a disc. It runs this application every night and if enough files have changed to warrant a new disc it burns it.
