I'm not sure where to put this post so feel free to move it to the most appropriate spot.
I am looking for a burner program that will do a bit to bit copy of my CD-ROM. One guy sent me a great step by step on how to run Nero to do this. The only Nero I have is ver.7 and it's newer than this step by step was derived for. It wouldn't work.
I bought a program that requires having the original CD in the drive everytime I run the program. I want to be able to run this program by clicking on an icon without constantly digging out my CD and putting it in before I can run. If my original disk ever gets scratched, I would be out all the bucks I paid for this thing, unless the company would send me a new disk to replace the old. Over time that gets less and less probable.
Even XP gives me a chance to make one copy for back up. These turkeys that put this out didn't even do that.
I had an old Makisoft source code that was supposed to read each bit and place it in memory but I've long since lost that code. For anyone interested in helping, I'm running XP 32 bit, I have the Borland C++ compiler, and I can partition my HD with enough room to run a DOS CD-ROM reader and unload the disk in DOS temporarily if needed. I've got lots of HD.
