Cool Does one copy CD-ROMs the same way as DVDs?

sponsored links

I've purchased some Mac Academy CD-ROM video tutorials and would really like to create back-up CD-ROMs so that I can store the originals safely. I'm a newbie, so all I can figure out on my own is to explore the contents of the disc and attempt to copy or drag and drop the files onto a hard drive from there. The problem is that when I open the disc up normally I only get three files. 1) a Notepad file naming the disc chapters and contents...2) a Quicktime installer file... and 3) a file titled "start.exe" that only serves to start the cd-rom up.

I paid a lot for these discs and knowing the clutz that I am, will certainly damage them in the future. I think it's unfair not to be able to copy something I've legitimately paid for.

So, are there specialized programs out there that I can use to crack these puppies and create duplicate CD-ROMs? I've found a lot of DVD duplication programs and am wondering if I need only use those. The video tutorials are split up into chapters, like a DVD is, and I would really like to be able to preserve that format.

I'm writing this on a PC, but will have a MAC G5 delivered by the end of the day (yeah!), so I would appreciate any info sent to be of the MAC variety. My laptop PC (which I'm typing on) does not have the power to copy anything anymore. was a workhorse while it lasted, RIP Vaio.

Thanks for any of your suggestions, have a great day.
