As long as there is no Copy Protection (Which is not allowed to be discussed here on the forums for legal reasons), get Roxio Toast. It's the OSX equivalent of Nero on Windows. You can make a disk image in Disk Utility and burn it to another CD/DVD but to me Toast is so much easier and handier.

I don't remember the exact steps, but it's something like this:

1. Put the CD or DVD disc into your Mac
2. Launch Disk Utility
3. In the top menu, go to File > New > Disk Image From...

Then choose your optical disc and make the disc image.

Mac Sites - down for reconstruction
