CD and DVD combo units

I am still looking for a new PC and have noticed that some come with a CD/RW..DVD/ROM combo unit, how do you copy a cd with only one drive.

I know there must be a simple answer
so hope you forgive my ignorance.

i use one.

an image of the cd to be copied is created on the hard drive first using nero etc.

thanks for the info, is it a better system than having two drives.

In my humble opinion no.
Copying cd to cd is faster with the 2 drives + if one fails you still have the other to carry on with.
