...including Roxio and Nero, (XP also has burning software of it's own, but I don't prefer it) but since you mentioned that you want to copy music directly from a CD and IF this is a commercial music CD, then it appears like copyright laws may be violated. The software manuals should give specific instructions on how to do what you are asking...Since the forum policies prevent us from violating any laws, we should leave it at that.
Hope this helps.
My son wants to copy some music from a CD I have to a new one, can someone tell me how to go about this from beginning to end. We have windows xp with a DVD r/rw, I'm not sure what kind of software you need or if you need any at all and what type of CD do we need to copy onto?
