Copying CDs is something that is very popular now more than ever. When CD burners and duplication was first introduced, people caught on although it wasn't nearly as popular as it is today. These days, millions of people throughout the world copy audio, data, and even video to CDs.

To make a copy of a CD, you'll need a master to copy, a blank disk, a CD-RW drive, and the proper software. Most newer computers include either a CD-RW or DVD-RW drive. If your computer is older, you'll need to go out and buy the drive, which doesn't cost much money and is very easy to install.

If you have a DVD-RW drive, you'll be able to copy both CDs and DVDs. The rate of copying will vary, with 4X being the slowest and up to 48X being the fastest. If your drive supports 48X, you can duplicate a CD in a matter of minutes.

Once you have the CD-RW or DVD-RW drive and some blank CD-R media, all you need is the software to duplicate. Nero is among the most popular, as well as Sonic Record Now and Easy CD Creator. There are many different types out there, from those that cost money to the freeware software that doesn't cost anything to use.

Once you have everything you need, simply run the software and create your disk. You can copy many types of media, including pictures, video, audio, and even data from your computer. Depending on what you want to copy, all need to do is select it from the software menu and let it rip.

CD duplication is a lot of fun and easy for everyone to learn as well. You can back up a lot of things, or just save pictures of your special memories - the choices are entirely up to you.
