If you have a DVD-ROM drive and a DVD burner then you can simply use your DVD burning software to duplicate the DVD. If there is no default option to duplicate a DVD you can browse to that DVD and select all of the files just as you would on your hard drive and have it burn a new DVD.

The catch, though, is that software DVDs include copy protection, preventing the duplication of the DVD. In that case it's a dead end as circumventing the copy protection is illegal.

Usually when you open My Computer it would state if the drive is a CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, etc. You could also use the free program Everest to find out more about your drives, and your computer in general.

In your other thread it sounds as if the game you are asking for help with is pirated, so this thread is also being locked.
