    DISK BURN vs DISK COPY?

    Can someone kindly explain the difference between copying a disk (using disk
    copy) and burning a disk image to a second disk. When would you use one in
    preference to the other?

    Thank you

    First: there is a difference between the terms "copy" and "burn",
    unless you're talking about copying/burning to optical media. Are you?

    Your turn.

    Just a standard CD-DVD player/burner. And I'm talking about CD's, not
    DVD's.

    Thank you.

    "Copying" burns the files to the media in uncompressed form that you
    can access with Explorer.

    "Burning an image" burns everything into a single compressed file
    that would probably require a proprietary browser (related to the
    software you use to do the imaging) to access.

    CD or DVD makes no difference..

    Disk copy from one CD/DVD to another. The entire contents are copied such
    that both are identical at the end of the process..

    Burning an image to a CD/DVD. Generally, the image file type is 'ISO', and
    the process converts the ISO file to a bootable form on the recipient
    CD/DVD.
