Mike...what people are saying here is that you need to be more specific. Do
you want to copy a commercially bought Music CD?, A music CD you made? A
data CD you made? Is it protected? Do you want an exact image or just the
files copied? etc

Native Vista will copy CD's in many of these cases. Also most PCs come
bundled with 3rd party disk burning programs. Roxio is very popular and has
additional features. Don't expect any of them to do illegal copies for you.
No one will (or at least shouldn't) help you here.

Tell me something: if someone asked you what the best way is to sharpen a
knife, would you tell them how illegal it is to cut someone's throat?

I did mean: how to copy an entire CD, a safety copy of my Vista backup CD.

Now I'm confused. I did a Vista backup through Vista's own procedure, and
the system asked me to insert a CD (not a DVD). I did so. Something was
burned to it. And this was the thing I wanted to back up. (Just as I used to
do with floppies back when God was a boy.)

To repeat - there is no tool in Vista that can copy an entire disc - not a
CD, not a DVD, not one that you have burned, not a backup disc, not one that
you have bought. There is no way to make a copy of an entire disc in Vista.
You need a third party program to do that.

You need 3rd party software to burn complete copies of disks.
I used to use Nero 6.6 in XP. Have not tried in vista, as I Ihate the later
Nero versions..

So why not go through that same procedure again?
