Most CD Burning software eg Nero, East CD etc has the capability to Copy CD's.

There are three problems that spring to mind.

1. Many Games CD's have copyright protection built in.

2. As Elrond states you will need to carefully read the licencing agreement to see if you can legitimately make a copy.

3. Some games have CD's that are larger in data size than 'normal' CD's
