Making a CD-RW from a cover disc

  Enoch 19:15 05 Nov 2005

Before I try I need advice. I receive PCAdvisor monthly. I travel a lot and take my laptop with me. I take all my programme and installation CD's with me (just in case). Each month there is at least one programme on the cover disc that I use. Up to now I have taken those discs with me (again, just in case).

Now, my question is; can I transfer the relative programme, that I am using off the cover disc, and burn it onto a CD-RW with other programmes from other cover disc's and just take that disc with me and re-install from the CD-RW disc, should the need arise.

I am running XP home

Advice would be appreciated

Yes a CDRW will do it - or better still a USB stick - you can get a 1GB disk for about £40 or so.

I strongly suspect you will be in breach of copyright if you do that.

Forum Editor, is Mr. Mistoffelees correct as the copies are for my own use and convenience???
