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.

Wrong, Kojak. An image, ahh, never mind. I doubt you'd get it :(
