I requested a specialist seed catalogue but it only came as a CD rom which is ok as it plays fine.I would like to give my son a copy but sure of the easiest way to copy it.I have a external CD writer as well as the internal one.It would be almost impossible to print it as there is so much to it so doing a copy seems the only way.Can someone advise please.

Easiest is to download the free version of Nero. That will allow you to burn a copy, even if you only had one DVD drive.

Or Ashampoo (free) will rip and burn.

Here's a list of the best free burners, click here. When you copy a disc with one DVD drive the burner will copy to a temporary folder then you remove the original and replace with a blank disc. It will then burn as many copies as you select.

Hi eedcam have installed what you suggsted ie imgburn what is the procedure for copying from one disc to another.I presume the disc I am copying to will be a DVD and not a CD.

I also have Imgburn and Ashampoo BS. With Ashampoo the task is easier. You select copy disk from the menu, it tells you to insert readable disc, it copies, then it ejects the disk and ask you to insert a blank disc, checks it, then burns and ejects the disc.

Hi Ponytail it will be wahtever you want to copy to if its on cd already then you can just put it on another cd Whichever insert the disc and open Imgburn it should open In EZ mode picker click on create image from disc and note where you are saving it to when you have done that come back

Hi rdave13, I installed ashampoo and it works fine have done the copy the only problem was I tried to copy it to a blank DVD but it required a blank CD but the copy plays fine thanks for the advice.I presume if I wanted to I could copy a music CD to a blank CD this way.

Yes. I'm puzzled why it wouldn't copy to DVD though.

The free Nero is not bloated. I use ImgBurn for ISO, but Nero is more straightforward to use for copying (for me, anyway!).
