Thread: How do I make a copy of a disk?

How do I make a copy of a CD the easiest way?
On a PC, all I would do is pop the source in one drive, the blank in the other, and use something like Nero to make a fast copy.
How do I do it on an iMac with only one drive?

Put the original disc in, and then open the "Disc Copy" application from Applications/Utilities. Then select the "create image from volume" option in Disc Copy. It will create a copy of the CD on your hard drive in a file with a ".dmg" extension. Then, put the blank CD in, and choose "open Disc Copy" from the dialog that will appear. Choose "burn image" from the file menu, and choose the image you created earlier. The best thing about images in OS X is that you can image CDs and keep them on your hard drive, and then open that DMG file to use it just like sticking the CD in. They "mount" on the desktop just like regular discs.
