copying CD/DVD's

I would like to make copies of non-copywrited CD/DVD's of my music and my videos. I have a CD/DVD rom and burner,windows XP sp 2. I have Roxio/Sonic basic burning software,and Windows Media Player 11 also.
Can someone describe how to do this,or direct me to informaton?
Thanks

Run either the Roxio or the Sonic program. It's obvious from there.

Hi racraft,
I figured out how to burn music,but i don't think i can burn videos without a different program. I believe there is a conversion factor to do that and my programs are not able to do it unless i buy a "upgraded " program.

That is not true. The trial versions that come with most computer systems are able to copy CDs and DVDs.

I was able to make videos using MS movie maker,however,as one issue is solved,another surfaces. Now,when i burn a cd/dvd with music,or video, it will only play on my computer.

Sonic will import most any video file to burn to DVD..

Click the Video tab on the left, then Create Project..
Click DVD or VCD in the right window..
Next you Add files on the right, find the one you want, and import it..
Edit the style and text..
On the lower left, check what Quality you want.. If a file is too big to fit, lower the quality till it says on the bottom that there is space left on the disc..
Click Burn, and let it do the work.. DVD burns can take 1 1/2 hours to do..

You can use this method to burn .avi files or .iso image files, etc..

For music, I create a .wav file of what songs I want to burn.. Import them, and burn the disc..

Copying a CD or DVD is NOT the same as making a CD or DVD.

When you copy a CD or DVD you make a copy of it.

When you burn a CD or DVD you are not necessarily making an optical disc that a CD player or DVD player can read. You might be or you might not be.


Then you have the problem of a compatible type of optical disc. There are DVD+R and DVD-R optical discs, to name just two types. Not ALL types are compatible with all players.

Just find out what types your drive will handle..
You can google the model number, or look in the manual..

Would Nero's Essentials be a good basic burning program for data,audio,and video? I don't need anything fancy. I see it advertized on different web sites for $3-$6.
