Hey all, recent switcher. I'm looking to copy an old (5 years old?) CD-rom that I used on my PC. Is that possible with a Mac if so what software should I use?

Copy the files onto your hard drive and then make a new burn folder in Finder(File>new burn folder). Paste them in there, put in a blank CD, and press burn at the top right corner.

Hope I could help

You should use either Disk Utility http://docs.info.apple.com/article.h...5/en/8764.html

or Freeware applications like
Burn http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/
Simply Burns http://simplyburns.berlios.de/
LiquidCD http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/28483

There are more but I can't think of them..

Hope this helps !
