I wouldn't be surprised if it's a funky proprietary rip format. I recall 
using Disk Juggler years ago, that would drive multiple drives so you could 
essentially build your own. Also had a 4 and 8 drive mechanical monstrosity 
thats auto loaded disks, and printed label. The labeler on one was inkjet 
(always our of ink) and a thermal monochrome printer that used a roll of 
something to print. Both printers were a pita though. Ended up using peal 
and stick label sheets. The label went through the labels by the ton, 
they'd send out over 250 cdrs per week. Long before using mp3's became more 
common for delivery to radio.
