Perhaps you have it already. Common are versions Nero and Roxio. These will have a CD duplication utility. There's a difference between just copying the files and making a full image of a disk as some CDs are bootable. The boot image isn't visible to the OS as a file so you need software that can do this. Check your program files for disk duplicating software. Windows alone cannot do this.
I am trying to duplicate (for backup purposes) a software CD. As far as I know, it is not copy protected. But for the life of me, I can't figure out HOW. I have a Dell Dimension 3100 with a single CD ROM/Burner.
I put the CD in and it plays and wants to start installing the software. I can cancel that, but then I can't find any obvious menu item (like, "Copy Disk").
I know, this is probably PC-101, but I'm a former Mac user, so please be patient. Any suggestions? I could copy all of the files on the CD onto the machine and then burn them back onto a new disk -- but I assume I need an exact copy of the disk to make it work correctly and I assume this method won't accomplish that.
