Hi, can you not open the files on your pc, save them to your harddrive and then if you want to, burn them to another cd.

If its a copyright protected CD it will have things on it to stop it being copied.

Hi, I am probably wrong, but I thought PDF files were meant to be portable/copy-able?

  Totally-braindead 18:51 06 Apr 2007

Yes Technotiger they are but if the PDF files have been created and the info on them is subject to copyright the disk MAY be copy protected. Even so Clone CD will probably manage.

Which program were you trying to copy it with chrisjohn?

is the CD that is copy protected or the .PDF files?

Are you trying to copy the CD in its entirity, or just save the files to your PC?

Can you open the files on the CD? if so, is the save and print icon greyed out?

This would indicate that the PDFs hae been saved with copy protection.
