    Pop in disc one, open Disk Utility then drag the disc one icon to the left hand column of Disk Utility, pop in a DVD and hit burn. Repeat disc two.

    Hi there,

    You don't specify which version of OS X you're trying to copy, but I found this article of use, when I made a backup copy of my Tiger retail disk.

    Hope this helps.

    Does the burn button on the top of the Disk Utility pane show up after you drag the disc icon to the left hand pane and pop in a blank CD+R disc?
