    CD Imaging Software

    Hi,

    My CD Writer Software is unable to copy from a Source CD as it has some physical errors and some viruses amongst the content.

    I need to still make a backup of this CD as it has important files. Can you pls. recommend any Imaging Software which can just make a copy of this CD?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    Physical errors? Can you copy it to your HD?

    I would suggest that for starters you copy what you can to your HD and sort any virus issue out. I can't imagine any good reason for backing up or copying a virus for future use.

    CDs are often manufactured with errors to try to prevent people from making copies using standard off the shelf software. Virtual CD can usually copy these CDs.

    Further to Stuart's post, you may also want to try IsoBuster. As Leif noted, if there are virii on the CD, proceed with due caution. Make sure those virus definitions are up to date and that the scanner is running as you copy the files to disk. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
