Hi there, could anyone tell if its possible to copy a copied cd in a CD/R.

You have a copied Cd and you want to copy it??

Why not? Of course it'll work.

If this is not the right answer then please restate the question more clearly. Thanks

Do you mean a commercial CD that has been previously
copied in contravention of the copyright on the disk?

-pops- - Oh you mean if its an illegal copy of a game or music CD?? Then no of course it won't work then. I was thinking about a data CD for backup purposes...

Well I had a CD which could be or could not be defined as a 'Commercial CD'. I copied it just to have a spare copy then I lost the original so I just wanted to copy the copied disk so I still have a spare copy.

Thanks all

If you have copied it before, you can copy the copy.

I have made copies of copies of copies of music (Legal though).

So will a need a special cd that can copy copies?

a copy can be made of a copy and a copy can be made of that copy on any writable/re-writable cd you choose. However, i have heard that a certain amount of data will be lost every time a cd is copied, usually at the start of the track... dont know how many copies you have to make before you notice it tho, ive copied things to about the 4th generation and theyve worked fine.
