Are there any hardware solutions where we could add numerous disks and have the system image to disk?

Any other considerations to think of would also be helpful.

Thanks for the info.

Most of the time, my former lab only received a handful of discs at a time. Damaged discs had to be previewed in our older forensic laptops.

But those rare occasions I used RIMAGE Evidence Disc System - Generates ISO files of stacks of discs.

The last system I used had a quirky configuration where the entire reading session had to be the same type disc (CD-R, DVD-R, DVD+R). But other than that, it worked great.

They are generically (I believe) called "autoloaders", or "disc autoloaders", a couple examples

used normally as duplicators/makers of small series of discs or for archiving ON CD/DVD (i.e. using a writer, not a reader) but similar mechanisms exist for data archiving (of CD's/DVD's) or "ripping"

What is the scope?
I mean evidence or archiving?
Professional or home/hobby?
Hundreds in how much time?

Essentially you can nowadays go for a robotic arm or go for something like this

Some time ago now I used an older version of this

Images to E01, takes photos of each disc also as it is being copied. Should do the trick for what you describe.
