if you ahve two cd roms/copiers

have you ever been able to copy a music cd to a cd direct without downloadng the music to your pc?

i was under the impression that you were never able to do this and had to rip all music to ps then copy it

my friend said no he used to put the bought cd in the top rom and copy it direct to a blank one in the cd copier below

is or was this ever possible

Do it all the time, I believe the technical term is "on the fly" copying ....alB

wel share the secret
hows it done?

do you need a programme, will i be able to do it with wmp11 or nero?

Could be wrong but would say no it would have to read the first disc and store it somewhere prior to writing to the blank

Yes, Nero will do it for you. Go onto Data and then copy CD - it will guide you through the process. And you only need one re-writer.

AS alB says, it's called 'on the fly', your burning software should have the option somewhere.

In Nero I just click copy, it writes the CD to Hard Drive then tels me to put a blank disc in the drive. it then writes the copy
