than ever. When CD burners and duplication was first
introduced, people caught on although it wasn't nearly
as popular as it is today. These days, millions of
people throughout the world copy audio, data, and
even video to CDs.
To make a copy of a CD, you'll need a master to copy,
a blank disk, a CD-RW drive, and the proper software.
Most newer computers include either a CD-RW or DVD-RW
drive. If your computer is older, you'll need to go
out and buy the drive, which doesn't cost much money
and is very easy to install.
If you have a DVD-RW drive, you'll be able to copy
both CDs and DVDs. The rate of copying will vary,
with 4X being the slowest and up to 48X being the
fastest. If your drive supports 48X, you can duplicate
a CD in a matter of minutes.
Once you have the CD-RW or DVD-RW drive and some
blank CD-R media, all you need is the software to
duplicate. Nero is among the most popular, as well
as Sonic Record Now and Easy CD Creator. There are
many different types out there, from those that cost
money to the freeware software that doesn't cost
anything to use.
Once you have everything you need, simply run the
software and create your disk. You can copy many
types of media, including pictures, video, audio,
and even data from your computer. Depending on what
you want to copy, all need to do is select it from the
software menu and let it rip.
CD duplication is a lot of fun and easy for everyone
to learn as well. You can back up a lot of things,
or just save pictures of your special memories - the
choices are entirely up to you.
