Hi

I currently have a Rimage 2001 inkjet duplicator in our warehouse.

http://www.rimage.com/products/desktop-series/rimage-2000i.html

It powers on but apart from that I can't test it further without the software(?).

Has anyone used one of these? can anyone let me know how to test it for worthiness?

I am also trying to work out how much this may be worth, if anyone has any idea.

Cheers

Do you mean the 2000i?

I had to install one of those a couple of years ago, was pretty straight forward from memory. 

You'll need the software from here - http://www.rimage.com/support/desktop-series/rimage-2000i.html 
and I've got a registration email here so I guess I had to register at some point to get an activation code for the software.

Once installed you can test by dropping a text file (see the guide) into one of the program directory's.  The software polls that folder, picks up the text file, converts it to a job, queues and processes (i.e picks up a disc, burns and outputs). 

Looks like you can get them for a little over $5k - http://www.acquire.co.nz/acquire/default.asp?PageID=ProductDetail&pf_id=1457022&dept_id=1100085

2 years ago I'm pretty sure they were well over double that!!

Thinking about it... if you just wanted a simple test, just plug it into a pc via usb.  It's essentially just a pair of external optical drives.
Install the drivers and do a burn to cd from Windows :)

It sounds like the software is pretty expensive. I am only testing it before we sell it so the boss wont want to spend any money on it :(

Thanks for the info though.
