Help...I want to Backup up my XP CD to my harddrive...

#1
Hi...
I am trying to make a backup copy of XP to my harddrive but I keep getting an error like "cannot read from source disk" or something similar.

Why is that? How can I get around it? I know my cdrom drive works and the cd works.


help...

'backup copy' < does that mean you're copying everything or are you trying to make an image (iso, bin/cue, etc) of the disk?

Ever tried ghosting it to CD(s)? That's what I usually do to make a backup of my machine.

its weird because I go to a command prompt and run xxcopy and it copies just fine but within windows it gives me that error.

it only happens with my original windowsxp cd, no other cd.
