    Recently I purchased Oxford Advanced learner's dictionery with CD. Now when I tried to copy it or make an iso image of it, it is not allowing to be copied. I want to know how this can be done and by what software.

    Now if your intentions are good and you want to make a backup copy of your original disk, you can use Alcohol120% or Blindwrite ....:)


    Remember sharing the backup cd with your friends or running it on more than one computer amounts to piracy which is forbidden here.

    After trying all options mentioned above

    Try This

    I've done it with winimage(use any alternative) and Virtual CD (ver.7)

    1.> First make an iso image of your CD with winimage. yes it will not get done. (do not delete the incomplete image, it has all the structure/info. needed to create virtual cd of protected CD's)

    2.> now insert this image using Virtual CD in your virtual Drive.

    3.> Create Virtual CD of the Inserted Incomplete image. (Allow Virtual Cd as Source for this option in Virtual Cd settings)

    4.> now edit the created virtual cd using the virtual CD editor. (Open .vc4 file for editting)

    5.> now copy your cd to any folder in HDD

    5.> copy all files to the editing virtual cd (replacing all existing files)

    6.> Then Create virtual cd from the editor itself.


    Thats it. this method will save your existing Genuine CD from gettin Scratchs :p

    I've successfully created virtual cd of Dungeon Seige, Mech Warrior (get with my HCL PC) and DukeNukem Project Manhettan usin this method.

    what if we want to make our CD protected like that. Is there any software that can prevent a cd being copied?
    __________
    Yaar bata do hai koi esa software?? jis se hum CD copy hone se rok sakte hain? or ya phir uska hide kar sake taki kissi ko pata hi na challe.

    I also wanted to know how cd can be copy protected. For everybody's info, the suggested software, i.e. Blindwrite cannot copy the protected cd. Can anybody give me the names some software/methods through which we can protect data/audio cd/dvd's?

    Why do you wana make your cd's copy protected :p. what's sooooo important.
    first you guys wanna copy copy protected Cd's. then you wanna make cd's copy protected

    but then thats human nature

    that's why there's a phrase in hindi " @#$%% ki puch kabhi sidhi nahi hoti" :p
